For those outside the US Midwest, you get to hear about (and possibly see) what I'm about to be in for.
17 Year Cicadas. Today I'll be taking pictures all around my house. Just as it is today. They are expected to start popping out this weekend (I'll be at my parents for Joey's birthday this weekend), so when I get back, I'll take more pictures.
Spooky lookin 'lil buggers, ain't they? I remember when I was 10 and got a glimpse of my first cicadas (I was living in Pennsylvania near some wooded areas)... there are literally billions of them! They don't bite or carry disease... they survive simply by overwelming numbers (something like "Predator Satiation" or something like that... there are so many, the predators can eat and eat and eat, but most still survive). They crawl everywhere and are in everything. I guess you'll get to see it next week. Anyone else about to experience a periodical cicada outbreak?
