Extra Dogday Cicadas This Year?
Just stumbled upon your site while trying to find out if this year there is an extra brood of dogday cicadas in the mid-Atlantic, specifically Maryland? I don’t remember in recent years hearing the dogdays so loud and being so numerous. I was able to capture a few pics of one emerging this morning and are attached to this e-mail. These are nice and close. AOL may ZIP them. Let me know if you can’t see them. You may use them as you wish, just maybe drop me a line! I have slightly larger versions as well. Look for my next e-mail with two absolutely FABULOUS shots, if I do say so myself, of the Brood X buggers from last year….
Thanks for the image. We are posting it as well as your Periodical Cicada image.
