The most interesting thing about these cicadas is that most folks cannot wait for them to leave. I am thrilled to see them again, and will be saddened when they leave because it will be another 17 years until I can visit with them and enjoy their company again, and hear their lovely symphony.
I think these cicadas are exquisite - like a dragon fly - and that their gossamer wings shimmer in the sunlight as if jewel-encrusted works of delicate art.
They won't be around for much longer, and the wait for their return in 2030 is a lifetime away. Enjoy their visit and be sure to take a moment to marvel at their beauty.
