I'd like to photograph them again too. I shot them in their various stages many years ago, before digital. I've been trying to find evidence of them around my yard, which has many very old trees, but so far haven't seen any signs. I wonder if my neighborhood might not have many. Last time there was a huge invasion, I lived in a different town and I got plenty of them there.

I'm afraid I'm going to jinx this so I haven't written anything. Well here goes...

We had an early spring and it became quite hot early on, for us. Still, no cicadas in the Knoxville area.

Oh gosh, I know I'm now doomed.

The 13 year cicadas were only in Middle Tennessee. I photographed some at Burgess Falls State Park about 2 weeks ago.

Well guess what? They got lost. They are all down here in Florida. All over the place. At my work we have glass doors going into our building and one was on the door handle peering in at us. So funny. I just don't like them eating all my plants.

I saw one so far. Was dreading their return. My pit/great dane eats them. *gag* Nothing like waking up to an 85 pound dog yacking up partially digested cicadas on your bed. But they never showed. I went to get something out of the barn yesterday and there was one dying all by it's little lonesome. Phew! Hoping this means we've escaped the things. Not a fan!
