The Sunday Creative

This weeks prompt
OBSOLETE




 1.no longer in general use, fallen into disuse. 2. effaced by wearing down or away. 3. to make obsolete by replacing with something newer or better; antiquate.

 This is the skin from a cicada. I found it in the garden last summer, the nymphs shed their skin when they become an adult. We find these skins all over the garden in the summertime.
They are obsolete!
I think it's pretty cool - like a prehistoric monster.

  10. probably up a tree!! There are gazillions of them here in summer - I love the noise - they only do it once it gets warm so the first one of spring is always special cos I know it's getting summery!
