Two Cicada Nymphs from Fairview Cemetery

Tibicen lyricen cicada nymph

I decided to go back again to Fairview Cemetery where the week before I got a total of 10 cicadas. Sure enough, I found two nymphs right away. One on an old maple tree and the other on another younger maple tree. I didn't want a repeat of what happened last weekend so I didn't stay until 3:00am but came home at a decent hour. I decided I wanted to get a nice series of shots of these two nymphs molting. The first set is of a Tibicen canicularis. Click the thumbnails below for larger pictures:

Below is a series of photos from the second nymph I found. This one ended up being a T. lyricen female.
