These guys are making a furious noise in the trees here in North Carolina. Every 13 years or so, depending on the species they come around, and I was lucky enough to get some shots of one over the weekend. I believe it may be part of Brood I, but I’m not totally sure. I took this with my iPhone, using Hipstamatic and a macro attachment lens.

What do you think? Have you experienced any of these critters around your neck of the woods? Let us hear from you in the comments!

    While in the shower the other morning, a screeching sound from the plumbing made me think something was horribly wrong. I quickly turned off the water, but the sound didn’t stop. Oddly, it sounded like a cicada being tortured. I walked into my bedroom, and there was my newly-adopted cat, batting around a poor captured cicada, ON MY BED. Dripping and naked, I grabbed a towel and threw it over the insect and threw it on my deck. When I got home from work, I gingerly lifted the towel and saw that the poor battered bug had made an escape.
