A Shell of His Former Self!

The annoying sounds of the cicada are finally fading in the background, and the birds can be heard again! At its loudest, the cicadas' singing sounds like they are riding on a merry-go-round! Their noise gets very loud, fades, and gets loud again!

In addition to the noise, Rocky, our dog, has enjoyed finding and snacking on their dead bodies. I'll be glad when they are completely gone!

Ugh! They look like aliens, don't they? But I always loved the noise they make.

LOL - we used to call these crunch bugs when we were little. Howard Pee Pugpants would love to have a few to snack on, too!

I'll be glad when they are gone too so I won't have to look at that picture! That is just gross Laura. Yuck. I hate bugs! Especially big ones.

We have cicada's here too but not many. Sometime around mid to late July we start to hear them. When I was growing up our family always called them Heat Bugs.

I'll agree with Jenn, they do have a nice sound. That's about it.
