I live in Omaha, NE, and about a month ago (mid August), the cicadas started up. My husband found this guy on the tree in our front yard. My camera actually snapped some pretty good photos, and I thought you might like to have them in your archives. Bugs are awesome!

    Wow, that is an AWESOME image! I love how the little girl is watching happily (and not screaming and hiding, having been taught by the adults in her life to fear insects).

    I love cicadas and I was sorely tempted to drive the 5 or so hours to the nearest part of this year’s brood of Periodical Cicadas. I decided not to, but as I sit near my window I still get to enjoy the whines and buzzes of all my local ones as I type this.
