セミの命 Life of cicadas

The day before yesterday on July 20th, my wife found a cicada struggling upside down after being fallen on the cement floor during its emergence (Picture ①). 
I thought it could not finish its emergence because he could not extend his wings as it was. So I held out a wooden stick for him to cling to it (Picture ②). And I put it in the shadow of leaves for him to dry his wings and not to be attacked by his enemies (Picture ③). 
According to my wife, he could finally fly high into the sky around 11 o’clock in safety maybe 5 hours after coming out on the ground of out garden.
It is said not all cicadas finish their emergence and one of the reasons for the failure is falling down on the earth while emerging.
