The Birds and the Bugs


I promised you bugs in my last post, but  I got sidetracked because my pal and I went to the fair yesterday. 
Pics of our fun will follow soon. 
Anyway...
Do yo know what this is?

 

No, it's not an alien - it's a cicada shell.  I found it on one of ma's trees.  I used to have more, but they are so delicate that they are easy to squish. 
When I hear them in August, it is another herald to the end of summer. 

This is the actual bug - it's one I have had for years.  I keep her on one of my curio shelves.   
They are so cool. 

 


And look! 
They're actually starting to look like birds! 
I took this pic around noon today.

Oh, the cicadas are crazy right now in my area! I had one "attack" me the other day as I was trying to get into my house. I guess I smelled yummy, who knows? They look so alien, so foreign, so LARGE!

That's weird. I guess you smelled like tree sap! Yum.
hahaha.
I guess cock-a-roaches in the south are even bigger.

Eew, bugs!
I have to admit, I'm scared of and disgusted by everything with more than four legs ^^"

But YAY for the birds. That's really an improvement ^^

Well, if you pull off 2 of the legs, then you won't be scared anymore. hahaha.

I know, I took another pic today and there's even more feathers. Nature is so amazing.
When they're gone, I may do a post with a pic from each day so it's easy to see the changes.
