A good shot of an ugly and noisy insect! Signs of summer.

Nice sharp shot.

His Mom probably died 13 or 17 years ago, so I doubt she cares one way or another. I lived through one wave of their appearances and I'm glad I'm now somewhere where they don't breed. What a mess.

Gee, I never realized Cicada's were reviled insects. Their "song" always reminds me of my childhood. I had no idea they looked like this though... wow... great shot with amazing clarity and detail.

I don't know if I reviled them on an individual basis. But when they emerged during their 13 year cycle in Maryland, they covered every surface. You couldn't walk outside without crunching on their exoskeletons which persisted long after they had either died out or gone back underground. A year after their emergence I would still find bits of them on various plants.
