ahhhhh....... looky here. Three types, including annual:
whoa, the motherload of cicada info! has their mating songs, too
It's these guys
A "7-year cicada" means it is 7 years from the time they are laid - not that they come in 7-year waves.
In other words, eggs laid this summer emerge in 2024, eggs laid next summer emerge in 2025, etc.
"periodic" cicadas spend most of their lives underground as nymphs (i.e. 7 or 12 years), then they emerge as the winged BB targets we are familiar with.
We had cicadas (we call 'em locusts down here in the Great State of Texas) every Summer when I was a kid. Roaming the neighborhood with a Daisy BB gun popping locusts out of trees was a favorite summer pastime - right up there with riding bikes to the neighborhood public pool.
Also had tickle bees (no sting) you could catch in your hand, and cool little clouds of lightening bugs that would come out at dusk.
Hardly see any of those anymore. Where did they go?
This is not a new concept.
In AA meetings you hear a lot about being disconnected.... "Apart from, instead of a part of".... "Standing in a room full of people, I still felt alone.".... "I always suffered from a case of terminal uniqueness", etc.
Working thru the AA steps will fix that - pretty much every time if done fearlessly and thoroughly.
yes, that is what I meant.
might be #FakeNews, but I've read over the years that our military targets are always on the list of "do not have a Rothschild Central Bank"
meh. i doubt they can capture the old magic.
I have the first season on dvd and it's pretty great. It takes a confluence of many factors to make a hip, successful show like that.
"re-imagining" pretty much never works.
