Cicadas

10 Aug

A week ago or so, I found a cicada floating in the goats’ water tubs.  I rescued it, and then we had a great photo shoot.  Well, I had a great photo shoot.  It was just trying to recover from nearly drowning.

A few days later, I discovered an exoskeleton.  Right beside it was the former resident.

What  pretty thing!

I hope you’ll come back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  I have this week’s list at the top of my side bar.

    I’ve never seen one up close, just heard them when visiting in Illinois in the summer. They were LOUD!

    Well he was a lucky fellow that you fished him out.

    Such fascinating creatures. I didn’t know until a few years ago that different cicada species have different emergence rates, and that the nymphs live for either 13 or 17 years in the soil before emerging as adults. Crazy! I’m glad you rescued this one!
