So a few minutes ago, Samantha walked over to me and told me she made a discovery at the locust tree in our yard...naturally, I was a little concerned. She's not afraid of anything, really. Well, not when it comes to nature, that is...
This little dude was sitting on our picnic table! It's a cicada. But thankfully it's just the "skin".....ugh! She brought him over with her bare hands and is saving it, because she wants to give it to Grandpa John...well, after all, his birthday is coming up this week....so...well, don't anyone spoil the surprise!
I kinda had to laugh though because I was just saying today that I was amazed that I've only heard them buzzing in the trees twice this whole summer. That's a sure indicator that the temperature has been well below normal for this time of year. I guess the lil buggers heard me and wanted to prove to me that they are indeed with us :) Gee thanks, little cicada friend. You totally made Sammi's day!
