Wordless Wednesday...Summer’s Noisemakers.
Since I was a little girl waiting outside my piano teacher’s home for my mother to pick me up, I have been fascinated by these bugs.
I would wait out by the tree in her front yard because I didn’t want to have to listen to the person who had the lesson after mine. Not that they weren’t a good musician but you can only take so many minutes of listening to music scales.
At certain times of the year, I would find the shells or skin of these cicadae. I was fascinated by them and freaked my mother out the first time I got in the car with a handful of their remains.
You can listen to the sound they make in this video.
