Skin Deep

Saw this guy, freshly out of his old skin, resting on my garage door this morning.

Fortunately I've only seen three of four of them around here this summer. No "Seventeen Year Cicada Invasion Force" consisting of literally millions of them like some areas of the country experienced recently.

I don't know if you can see it in the photo, but his shed husk consists of the body, the six intricately jointed legs... and the eyes! I get all the body and legs part, but how the hell do you shed the skin on your eyes?

And before you bring it up, I'm aware that my garage door frame needs painted. What can I say, my duties here as CEO of Bob Canada's BlogWorld keep me very busy.
