  2. cicadas are so revolting. we see them flying around at dusk. i much prefer seeing the bats swarm around.

  4. cicada! i actually really like the loud cicada noise in the summertime. they can be jerks to plant life, though.

  5. We just had "attack of the killer cicada's" here in Tennessee this summer. You'd think you'd get used to seeing them and although my kids played with them while they were everywhere, their scream and darty flying freak me out! My youngest son said they were "cute".

  6. definitely a cicada (like everyone else noted). here's a truly terrifying image of one molting http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/6/62/Cicada_molting_animated-2.gif/170px-Cicada_molting_animated-2.gif

  7. We LOVE cicadas! ;)

    Our son is an entomologist-wanna-be and if we lived closer he would be
    right over to add him (or her) to his collection!

  13. Ugh! We had cicadas when I was a kid in New York. I guess they only hatch every so many years. Totally scared the crap out of me and would always land in my hair. Made me the bug-o phobe I am today.
    Thanks for the memories, haven't seen one in Boston yet.
