We've been busy exploring and I haven't taken many photos, but had to get a couple shots of the cicadas that have produced a musical background to our days here. I believe these are the "seventeen year" variety--they have been living and growing underground until the last couple of weeks when they emerged, looking for mates. I understand that there are several varieties -- 3 year, 5 year 7 year, etc. So I guess cicada chorus is a common, yearly activity around here.
But it's definitely a novelty for Glenn and me. Enough so that we had to get a photo of one of the very noisy little creatures. I'm not a bug fan, but something about these creatures is kind of appealing and not as creepy as I would have thought.
