Leaving for work, I noticed the sunlight gleaming through this abandon cicada shell hanging under a fence rail. I came back a few days later, right around the same time, and got this photo of the backlit shell. These empty shells disgust my wife but when I was a child we would play with them in the summer. We had great fun pretending they were aliens, space ships and monsters. Maybe because of that, they remind me of simpler times and summer fun.

I loved hearing how they were props in your childhood make-believe fun.

Thanks Deb. I’m glad you didn’t think it was too creepy. 🙂

Hey, I’m a fan of the “Resident Evil” movie and video game franchise. You’d have to try harder to be “too creepy”. 😀
