Cicada Newborn (FZ150)
I was hiking and just happen to see this hiding under some leaves. I had never witnessed this before although I've seen the discarded shell and the full-grown adults. Taken with a LC-55.

You were lucky, they usually hatch out at night, well done.

Thanks Grounded, yes I feel really lucky to witness this!

Looks like you caught it just after it molted, or shed the skin. We used to have a pet tarantuala. I know, my wife is wierd that way. I think she still has his old skins.
