How long will it go on?
A weird freak of nature, these crusty little boogers have emerged from their seventeen-year hibernation / incubation.
While certainly interesting to look at, these critters aren’t especially beautiful unless you are a fellow cicada. I took some liberties depicting this one with a little flash of color and a splash of sparkle. As the local birds are enjoying this tasty, exotic treat, you are encouraged to kick back and enjoy the song for a few more weeks. And stop the whining, most of us only get to witness this sound phenomenon five times in our own lifetime; free souvenirs!
