Sounds Of The Night - Cicadas

Pic from this source.

I vaguely remember these things while growing up in Pennsylvania, but we always referred to them as locusts...didn't we? Seems they're confused often. However I don't remember them being so loud. So loud they drown out the creek noise. The below night video was taken about ten feet from the creek. If you compare to other creek videos you can get an idea how loud these critters are.

I've seen some laying on the ground in the morning but that's about it. Seems they live in wee little holes like this in the ground and love tree roots.

Btw, a few recipes for the critters if you like eating bugs...
