Ecdysis

exoskeleton of a molting cicada

 

I WOKE up at the camp site in Kalaja and saw this strange creature attached to a shirt hung on the clothesline. I came closer and found out that it was just an exoskeleton of a cicada that just went through the biological process called molting or ecdysis.
