Life at our forty acre farm includes a wide assortment.
The smaller variety and more vocal are the cicadas.
Here, in the summer, it is quite common to find their shells attached to trees, picnic tables, and on the sides of the house.
Yesterday morning, I was determined to find one emerging from it's shell so that I could get a picture.
And yep, I did.
Meet one of our newest tree dwellers...
Stanley Cicada...or maybe...Cindy Cicada.
Anyway, he/she is now a part of the choir that sings in the treetops during a hot summer day.
And really, I don't know if summer would be quite the same if they didn't.
Stay cool and comfortable as those summer temps rise!
