Fallen Cicada

I was walking across East 6th Street tonight, when I saw this:

I'm pretty sure it's a cicada. It looks like the new bug is emerging from a split at the head, much as Athena emerged from a split in Zeus's head!

In case you're wondering (as well you should be!), when I finished taping this, I picked up the bug and tried to put it onto a tree branch in the tree area of the very groovy Earth School, but it just fell back to the ground. At least it was off the sidewalk, and able to continue its metamorphosis!

Save the critters!
