I am sharing our Son's cicadas. It has been determined by his parents (us of course), that he and our Daughter-in-law definitely have more in their area than we do around our home.
We have a few in comparison but I suppose it's early days yet. If I sound disappointed I am not. We have trees in our yard but their home backs onto a wood. We exchange photos via text from our trips out, even around our garden if something of interest comes up. They enjoy walking each day and have their own interest with things in nature. I am very happy about that.
An annual cicadas can live between two and fives years, and a periodical cicadas can live for up to 17 years in the larva stage. That's not quite as long as queen termites which are thought to live 50 to 100 years, but it's far more impressive than the average life span of a housefly which is 15 to 30 days. Cicadas, like most insects, live the majority of their lives in the immature stages of development. While some can remain underground for more than a decade, they typically die only a few weeks into adulthood.
That's all from my Son's cicadas photos. But I'll end up with one more photo and a video of his. The first are wildflowers, Philadelphia fleabane. I will share it again sometime and add more information...
