Well the Bugs are here in full force now. I'm pretty sure these are the 17 year cicadas. Which they claimed wouldn't be that big of a deal in this area, but a bigger problem in southwest Virginia (I'm in northeast VA). I've lived in Virginia my whole life and remember these guys being all over the place when I was a kid, but I've never seen them in numbers like this.
Going outside and watching the grass move with them is one thing. Going outside and seeing the brown nymph shapes they hatched out of hanging all over every tree is another thing.















That's from literally only a few minutes of snapping pictures and just of the ones on that *one* honeysuckle bush. The backyard is like a little cicada airport right now. I came in becuase the battery on the camera died. But I would have come in very shortly anyway becuase Mika was eating the ones in the grass whos wings weren't quite dry yet. ::shudder::
