While portions of Chicagoland were inundated with the 17-year cicadas, in my area we had hardly a whir or flutter. It was only last Thursday, at the tail-end of the invasion, that I saw my first cicada up close. And once I did, I was darn glad we’d been spared. Yeesh!

I remember them from when we had them here a few years ago. They’re icky things, so I’ll pass on viewing your photo of one up close, if it’s all the same to you!
All of my life, I’ve wondered what those buggers looked like! Now I know. Awesome shot! Cripes they’re ugly
