Photo of the day

Okay, I did take pictures of the cicadas after all.  According to this article the season will peak in mid-June.  It's only the 3rd!  Every day {more than once a day} I go out and knock the little nasty, dead things off of everything.  A while ago, one rode in on the little dog and was flying around the house, ewwwwwwwwwww!

COLUMBIA – After 13 years of hibernating cicadas are expected to make their appearance in Missouri by mid-May.
Cicadas come up from the ground every 13 years and flock to the trees. They’re known for being noisy making their mating sound. When the eggs hatch the baby cicadas crawl back underground to hibernate for another 13 years.
The cicadas do not sting or bite and the season peaks in Mid-June. However, some residents claim they are already here.
One expert claims that in heavily wooded areas there may be more than a million cicadas per acre. [source]
