Camera Critter #176

These days, I often hear Cicadas on television shows and even heard them in the background when I was talking to my mom a while back.

But this year, one place I haven’t heard them (so far) is around here.  Last year, I heard a few, and even got a photo of one.

CRW_0486 - Okanagana bella

But this year, the homestead has been rather Cicada quiet on the home front.

Misty Dawn’s Camera Critter Meme is a great way see critters the world over. Go to the homepage here to see more. Then join the fun and add your own.

As you know, I hear them. In fact, I hear them right now.

Love the photo. I haven't heard too many in my area either. We are due for the 17 year ones in about 14 years from now. Interesting critter.

we have been inundated with the darn things .. but not as bad as a few years ago when they were everywhere! (I didn't realize how many of them there were in the crapapple tree out front, and I hit it with the hose to wash out a web/nest or two. Not a good move on my part.)

Great catch of the Cicada. I've been hearing them and I've seen a few too.
