Nacho32,

Great pic of an occurance which takes place after 17 years. Before that, the wingless Cicada lives underground. You have witnessed someyhing rare. I have many times seen the empty shells of the wingless form still clinging to the tree,but the mature adult was nowhere to be seen. They live onlylong enough to breed after transforming. Thanks for being there at the right time and sharing with us

Robert
