Now that our week of rain has slowed down the cicadas are calling and mating. Here is a female I spotted out by my clothes line laying eggs in a bush. The calling is so loud around our house you actually have to speak louder than normal outside to be heard.

Dear Jess,
Thanks so much for providing an update on your Periodical Cicada submission from last week.  We suspect that Brood XXIII may have a very limited distribution as we have not received any other submissions for this significant event.
