Beautiful visual imagery of the shells of these lovely creature i remember from childhood growing up in the South...also i feel Mike in them, Ms. A, i feel all of us who are suffering, becoming emptied out of all we hoped for, all we thought we were, all we once felt we had control over in our lives only to discover some helplessness inside that leaves us feeling empty...please forgive my reading so much into these, but it is how they make me feel...however, having shed this husk, a new freshness in life is gained. Mike, you, and yours ever in my heart. love, chana

Great photos! Is this from a cicada? That's my supposition. Take care!

Wonderful shots. We haven't seen any yet this year.

Super cool, but yet creepy as well.

NCmountainwoman said...

Bet you're glad to see them go. Hope all is well with your son. Still praying for all of you.

Judy said...

It looks like a Cicada shell--use to find them on the pine trees when I was a kid. Nice photos!!!

Lynn Proctor said...

Deborah said...

Bugs!

Teasing.

You get the best shots.

Katherines Corner said...

Sally said...

I was looking at your photo's again, and the third one kinda looks like a martian, if there really are martians, which I don't really know. :)

I am not in the right frame of mind right now to appreciate another little creature like this, although I can certainly admire your photography skills. Since moving to the duplex, the past couple weeks have brought me face to face with spiders and bugs so my nerves are weary. Why they bother me I don't know, but they do. Hope you are doing all right. Sending you lots of positive energy.

Chatty Crone said...

Okay your picture were great. Yuck!

Mom of the Perpetually Grounded said...

Cool!

Terri said...

Freaky! I don't like to find these skins/shells attached to my trees!

pembrokeshire lass said...

Incredible! I've never seen anything like it! What photography. Thanks for showing us. Joan

Barbara Shallue said...

We don't have any empty ones yet. Great shots!

Kathleen's Blog said...

Awesome shots---looks pretty intimidating actually!

Betsy Adams said...

Hi There, I'm back after a big birthday week. Trying to catch up a little on my blogging.

Great close-ups of the 'shell'.... You are right. It's EMPTY....

How is your son?
Hugs,
Betsy

Just checking in to see how you're doing lately. I've been thinking of you and your family!

George said...

Your macros are excellent. The detail and clarity are simply perfect.

Nancy said...

Hmmm. A woman of few words but lots of images. Sounds familiar. Hope you are doing okay my friend. xo
