I can remember as a child, I was always thrilled to find the little brown shells that locusts left behind. I rarely saw the actually locusts but the little husks offered awe and hours of imagination. Sometimes I think it would be nice to shed our outer shells and get to start anew.

PS I grew up calling them locusts, maybe it's a Missouri thing, but yes, technically they are cicadas. :) From Wikipedia: Cicadas are sometimes colloquially called "locusts", although they are unrelated to true locusts, which are a kind of grasshopper. They are also known as "jar flies".
