    I saw several of these this summer, and thought they were walking stick nymphs. I’m so glad to know what they are. Cicadas are one of my favorite insects.

    That picture is really cool of baby cicada’s after they come from the tree. I never got to see any and so i was glad to see the picture of them. Sheri Tuskey
