As promised, the Magicicada adults are all but gone in most areas. I assume that most that are left are in Long Island or Cape Code.
Compared to last year (Brood XIII), Cicada Mania had 57% fewer unique visitors, which was expected. That said, I had 57% more fun this year, which makes up the difference.
Another cool Flickr photo.

Brood XIV Magicicadas in Ohio in 2008:
- A male missing it's abdomen.
- Another missing it's abdomen due to a fungus infection.
- Adult cicada with it's nymph skin still attached.
- A cicada laying eggs on a branch. Mating cicadas.
We need a CICADA montage! from Cicada Mania on Vimeo.
