Brood XIII: Periodical Cicadas from Lisa’s Mom near Chicago
Here are some pictures. I’ll send a few more in another email. The sound is wonderful. Like trillions of tiny tambourines or fairy bells. Not too loud here. I sent a few pix with the biggest groups I found. Mostly they are not like that at all. And I rarely see them on any tree trunks. Only on the plants on the ground or lower leaves of the trees. I think they start there and then fly up to the treetops.
We have been waiting for our readership to send in Periodical Cicada images, but to our dismay, only one has arrived. Thankfully, we now have your awesome images of this unforgetable phenomenon. For more information on the Periodical Cicadas, visit Sue’s new website.
