    17 Year Cicada

    They're everywhere. Just wanted to share some pics.







    During the last swarm, my brother and I would pick them up by their wings and fling them at each other.

    They tickle

    @ECooper: Not long. I read about 3 weeks, sometimes four if they're lucky. The emergence lasts for about 2 months.

    Wanted to show the molting stage that I've always found fascinating. From last night:



    Freshly molted.

    They're just now starting to die off here. I'm using the wings of dead ones for an art project.
