Cicada Sightings- The Invasion Begins!

Here on the East Coast of the U.S., there have been reports of the insects known as cicadas emerging from their 17-year hibernation by the millions.


When I was at my parent's house for a Memorial Day BBQ this weekend, my brother pointed out some cicadas on the plants. 

I got a closeup pic of one of these fairly large insects. Their molted remains were attached to the bottoms of the surrounding leaves.
