Default Anybody ever seen this??????

Me and my 7 year old girl collect cicada shells through the summers on the trees in our yard. I did it when I was a kid,...she likes to spot'em now. I seen a few already hatched out about 2 weeks ago,..seen a shell or 2 also. Last week we were looking around our trees and she says "there is one doing it right now!" ,....and sure enough he was working his way out. I had just never caught one in the act of exiting the shell. Anyway,..here is some pics..
