9/18/21: Edgar the Cicada, Part 4: Unfurling

Here now is some shaky (sorry) 3D catadioptric timelapse footage of Edgar exiting what I like to call the baby dragon phase, and beginning the sit-up which will complete his eclosion (emergence) and ecdysis (molting). His wings were rapidly unfurling and expanding here.

The next video will see him completely free!
