Some Brood X Cicada Photos


The cicadas are out in force and for the past week or so I've been watching them and taking pictures.  Here are a few of my favorites.


These Brood X cicadas have been underground for 17 years, but now they are climbing out and onto trees and plants. Once out, they do a final molt to their winged form.  They will only live for about a month longer during which time they will mate and lay eggs.
