I do love cicadas. Noisy, but they signify summer is here. Thank you.
Interesting photos. I have never seen a cicada or locust.
I remember those 17 year cicadas in Chicago when we had them. I'll never forget those eyes.
Yes, it was fascinating to watch the cycle. Once, when I was somewhere abroad - can't remember where - I heard the Cicadas but didn't see them. I guess I was in the wrong place for a viewing. Thanks for this, Denise.
Cool post and video, Denise. I have not seen any Cicadas here yet. Have a happy day!
I have seen this before. Quite remarkable. I wonder what they do underground for seventeen years - there must be some purpose to their existence.
An amazing video, a real wonder of creation! And your photos are amazing too!
We aren't having an "outbreak" of them here .... but I think they are really really cool!!
wings like flies, everyone is "buzzing" about them right now!!very cool video!!
Whoa! These macro details are interesting.
I miss the cicadas of Italy - it's the sound of Summer and hope to hear and see them when we go soon. I shall remember the facts re. the life cycle - amazing and I had no idea. Wonderful photos. Denise. Have a good day!
fascinating header angle are you onfacebook?
I remember our last Cicadas. What a mess they were everywhere. Dread the next time already. Cher Sunray Gardens
Great shot of the cicada. I have never seen a nymph before.
Thank you so much for finding and sharing this video. Amazing life cycle and photography and perseverance in getting it all together.
I still remember when the 17 year cicadas hatched in Illinois. The sound was deafening at times and their dead bodies were piled up everywhere. What an experience!
