Cicadas

Cicada shells in the sun

Cicada shells in the sun

I really thought I’d got my Cicada photos out of my system with the last blog……I guess not. They tell me that every seven or so years we get plague like proportions of these little fellas, and this year is one of them. The warm weather has brought them out of the ground around 3 weeks early, and this year and they are everywhere….I won’t bore you with too many facts this time as you can read them in my last blog. You will find as you look through my photos that I find the shells far more engaging than the actual Cicadas, weird I know. For me I find the skins far more photogenic in nice light than the actual live cicadas, not always but most of the time. So if you’re not overloaded with the noise from the guys at the moment I’m sure my photos might tip you over the edge, lol. Enjoy!

Have a super weekend…
