Insect Exoskeleton

An insect exoskeleton blew across the backyard this morning, I think belongs to a cricket. It’s so beautifully detailed….the delicate and magical world of insects is rarely seen close up. There’s a split on the top of the carapace where it squeezed out to grow a new shell….maybe I’ll hear its owner chirping in a new skin tonight….
