Cicada Emerging from Shell

L. called me out to the back yard while I was still in my pj's. Luckily we have a privacy fence. He saw this cicada, which I have called 'locust' all my life. This little guy was just coming out of his 2 - 17 year time spent underground.
According to the dictionary, locusts are what I called grass hoppers. I guess that explains the locust plagues in the Bible.
