Here are the cicada shells we're finding on our trees, and we can hear the grown bugs "singing" in the trees like crazy! Usually I find a dead one, and will upload it if/when I do, so those of you who don't know what a "dry fly"/cicada bug looks like! As children, we'd look for the shells at the end of summer and pick them off.........whoever got the most shells won. WHAT we won, I don't remember.........but I still love to look for them. And passed the fun on to another generation or two........

Well this picture fascinated me!! I didn't really know anything about the cicada but we have them here too. In fact they have been singing up a storm all week and the weather is very hot and dry for Sept.n which is what they predict isn't it?
