In 2016, I visited West Virginia and southern Ohio to witness the 17-year cicada emergence. I collected naturally deceased individuals and salvaged their wings. I have been working with cicada wings for years, but this is the first time I observed their emergence. Here are a few of the new pieces along with photos of my trip.
