Cicadas are oval-shaped, winged insects that provide a buzzing and clicking song heard in nature throughout the summer. Most cicadas appear every year in late June through August, while others emerge only every few years.
Their wings are transparent and can seem rainbow-hued when held up to a light source. The veins on the tips of the wings of some cicadas make the shape of a W.
Cicadas are found throughout the U.S. (and many parts of the world), but periodical cicadas — the species that emerge above ground only every few years — live primarily in the eastern and central U.S.
This summer we have many of these noisy little insects called Cicadas. I snapped this photo as one of hundreds visited the deck.
Do you have these noisy Cicadas in your world?
