Day 90 - July 25, 2011 - There are Back...Sort of
The Cicadas visited us back in May...stayed
for weeks and they let you know they
were around with the loud noises they
made.....I mean LOUD!
There thousands upon thousands of
them. That batch were known
as the Periodic Cicadas.
Coming out every 13 to 17 years.
But now we have been visited by the Annual Cicadas.
Not many have appeared but these bad boys
come once a year.
They are fatter, don't have the orange eyes and the wings
appear to be longer. But after weeks of the
noise we put up with, I was surprised when I heard
these guys. I thought maybe they were really
late bloomers! The internet helped with my
learning about the differences.
Thanks for stopping in,
