Adult cicada and the shell left behind when they molt into adulthood. Last one is the underside of a cicada that has mated and then expired.

Excellent photos, excellent text, excellent overall!
Except for the mate & die bit. I hate when that happens!

I'm sorry. I meant to include camera info. Pentax K7 and 100mm macro lens. These really are quite common in Wisconsin. They mostly move around at night. During July or August you can hear them buzzing loudly in the trees as they call for a mate. If you have lived in Wisconsin for a while, I'm sure you have heard them.

Thank you N72. I am glad you liked them. But the mate and die part, perhaps it's a blessing?

I'm not sure about NE Wisconsin. In SE Wisconsin we see them pretty often. I don't think these are the seventeen year variety. We also get tons of June bugs.
