I was walking out to the mail box when I saw this
I went out to get the mail today,and while I was walking by the telephone poll, I heard this very high pitched sound. I thought at first that it was some crazy electrical happenings above on the wires. I looked closer and saw this insect, which I believe is a cicada. I never thought California had them. I heard them in the South of France and in Indiana,where my Dad lives,but never here! It let me get fairly close and then got spooked. Has anyone else out there from California seen one of these guys?
It is so smoky from all the fires, that seeing this cicada out there, you would think it was the apocalypse!
