Excuse Me, Which Way to the Swamp?

September 2, 2021 0 By GerenM

Found this little critter, a swamp cidada I believe, wandering around my driveway this morning, and it appears to be pretty fresh from it’s shell — it’s left wing isn’t completely unfurled yet! When I knelt down to get some shots and put my phone close to the ground, it actually turned towards the lens for a few moments, as if to pose and say, “Well, hello there!” And then, it turned again and continued on its way. This is the first green cicada I’ve ever seen. All the others have been the typical dark brown/black ones with the bright red eyes.
