Today's heat really brought out the cicadas. Sooo loud! It was hard to photograph because of the wind swaying the branches and then, just at I'd get the focus I wanted, one would fly at me and land on my leg or my neck. I'm not really all that brave, but I did get a few cool shots.
Two days ago we had 18 fifth graders come out from an elementary school on the west side and they were pretty into the cicadas because there weren't any in their neighborhood. I wish they had been here today to see the grown women run screaming from their cars to the door.
