They're Back!

You can enlarge the photo with a click on it. Unless it's already large enough!

Big and noisy.

Cicadas are singing their love song
for Almost Wordless Wednesday.

  2. A real beauty although coming eye to eye with him could be quite scary. Red eyes and all that fancy webbing.

  5. Good shot Gail! I've been wondering if we were going to get them after we did that piece on them in the magazines. One of the guys in the office has seen them just north of our town but so far, none in it. I haven't even heard the regular ones yet.

  10. The neighbors are having very loud sex. I may have to resort to wear my noise-cancelling headphones to drown out the sounds of their fun.

  12. Whoa! I don't know what's more impressive, your photo or the fact that you have them buzzing already. Ours don't start till June or July. Maybe I'm crazy but I enjoy them. Watch out for the Cicada Killers!

  15. Great photo! I'm pretty much ok that we don't have bugs that big here in the Pacific NW. Ok, I take that back. Our slugs are that big!

  16. Hi Gail, I had never seen one of these bugs, until I saw it on a blog just recently. I can't believe those red eyes! Your GBBD post is wonderful. I love the dark iris and the white peony.

  17. Thanks for sharing the great picture and link. We have been finding the first of the 13 year cicadas here in Raleigh too!

  18. Lovely photo, Gail! I love their song, personally, but they're even prettier to look at...

  19. Fab pic! Cicadas always remind me of the lovely holidays spent in Greece and Italy. We don't have them here but maybe we will one day if the weather we've been having these last few months is anything to go by. Summer in spring, who knew?

  20. We, so far in West Tn do not have them. Please keep them there! I remember one year they were so heavy there was this constant drone and it about drove me nuts! Maybe there wont be many!

  21. Wow! What a stunning photo. I love how you've given us a chance to see the amazing colours and details which normally wouldn't have been noticed/appreciated.

  23. Great shot of the noisy bug. I remember them when I was a kid in Tn.

  24. Oh, my -- we haven't heard them yet in the Piedmont of SC, but my gardening companion (aka my husband) heard them up in the Triangle area (of NC) today,

    Way cool!
