9/19/21: Edgar the Cicada, Part 5: Emergence!

This single video makes my catadioptric experiments worth it: the rebirth of Edgar the Cicada, in 3D video!!! As he pulls the tip of his abdomen out of the nymphal exuvium (shell), he completes his eclosion (emergence) and ecdysis (molting), and starts his life as an adult (imago). It took ~43 minutes to reach this point, which was at 8PM local time on the dot. This is the actual sound, turned up a bit.

This, like my other cicada 3D video footage, was filmed on my DIY catadioptric rig.
