Your letter to the bugman : Hello! Here’s some Magicicadas that we found today-the larger one has the typical red eyes and the small guy has brown eyes!! Pretty sure they are both males. I love coming across ones with unusual eyes (I sent in a photo of a “mustard” eyed magicicada back in 2013.) They are so beautiful!!

According to CNN, the Brood X Periodical Cicadas that are emerging in your area now are known as the Great Eastern Brood. We located your Brood II submission on June 6, 2013 and also one on May 28 the same year. It is wonderful that your location allows you to experience the 17 year emergence of two different Broods of the Periodical Cicada.
