Cicada Shell.

A fully-winged adult cicada has emerged leaving its old empty skin or exoskeleton behind. Found on trees and under leaves these are popular with kids who pick them up and stick them onto their clothes (the shells have sharp legs which pin onto almost anything) and run around claiming to be eaten alive by insects. Great fun!
