Welcome Australian cicada maniacs! David from Sydney let us know: “The cicada season around Sydney, Australia has started with the emergence of “green grocers” (Cyclochila australasiae) in the lower Blue Mountains. Grass cicadas have been out for a month. Get ready Antipodeans!!”. Thanks, David. Enjoy the Green Grocer/Yellow Monday links below (thanks to Laura for the inspiration):
