Cicada Invasion...Strange and Interesting Katydids

These pictures of cicadas...or Katydids as we call them in Mississippi...are from the Internet, not my camera. For unknown reasons we are having an invasion this week and their very loud singing in the evening is music our two rat terriers dislike. The type of cicadas we have here usually emerge every 13 years or so and were last seen by the billions in 2001 and 2002. This brood is about 7 years early!

I am so glad that we do not have this sort of cicades here. They look quite frightful ;-) !!
I've to catch up a lot of posts here on your blog and I started with "gardenbreak", but unfortunately the video isn't available any longer. Hope you're fine again. Have a good time! Thank you for visiting and leaving a comment.
