Semi is Japanese for cicada.

The cicada on the top left side was still emerging from its shell.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

I know they must get up in the leaves like this 'cause I hear them at night, but have never noticed them up there.

@Twelvebit: They try to crawl to as elevated a position as they can before moulting starts, I think.
