Cicadas, Part II

After much fanfare, the cicadas have come... and the cicadas have gone.

I actually miss them and their deafening racket -- in much the same way I missed the sound of vuvuzelas for months after the 2010 World Cup. So much so that I recently wrote an appreciation of these mysterious insects for NPCA's Park Advocate blog.

Oh, Brood II, we hardly knew ye. See you again in 17 years, fellas.
