The Cicadas are out in full-force. I'm not sure if we are in some 13- or 17- year cycle or if it's just the annual species, but, oh my, there sure is a bunch of them and they are very loud. Not helping my tinnitus at all! I noticed these on my little maple tree outside, all lined up as if they were out for a duck-walk and decided it was a nice spot to moult. The tree is covered with shells. I was fascinated by "locusts" when I was little, collecting the shells and sometimes even the insects (which Dad would never let me keep in the house, although I tried). And I guess as an adult, I still am. Except for that infernal noise!

Chances are, I'm just going to let it go. I think I've about lost interest at this point. There's always next year!
