Last week as I was walking to the train station on my way to work, I spotted a large bug on a tree that appeared to be dead. I took a photo of it and then Googled it. Turns out it was a cicada in the nymph stage.
They normally shed their nymph skin and emerge as adults, with their full wings. I wasn't sure if the adult had already emerged or not, so I figured I would check it everyday to see what happens. In just a few days I had my answer....
I captured this image on my way home from work. I was incredibly surprised to catch this one as it was emerging! Came back the next morning and it was gone and only the nymph shell remained. Nature is totally amazing!!
On another note, we got a free rug over the weekend. One of our neighbors in the condo where we live was getting rid of a rug, so we decided to take it. Nothing beats a free rug! Right now I have it in my dressing room. Not sure if I prefer the old rug or this new rug though. I figured I'd give it a try for a few days to see how I like it.
New rug in a bright orangey-red! The color of the rug is really bright. and the photo does not do it justice. It is also a little smaller than the rug that was there previously.
Here is the rug that was here previously. I don't know...I still like this rug too!
Not sure which one stays and which one goes, but I think I'll keep the new rug in for a few weeks to see if I like it.
