Big deal

This is the 17 year cicada brood in Ohio. They have red eyes. Oh!? They are silent when it’s cold. It was. No noise! Then, we got a nice day. It was noisy. For me, it’s background noise and hardly noticed as one would not smell a noxious odor after a few minutes. But, for others in the family, the noise remained deafening and annoying. Ok. I was happy enough for the photo-op. 17 years, I probably won’t be around for the next cycle. It’s a long long time to be dormant.

I did not know that locusts and grasshoppers look pretty much alike. So, that makes this a cicada. I’m seeing all kinds of interesting wildlife since I’m not diving. I hate bugs. I hate insects. I hate mosquitos. I hate spiders. Why is it always ugly bugs? Well, for some, beauty has its own appeal. …just not me.
