Filed under: Cicada Mania — Dan @ 12:05 am

In case you want cicada images and video to share, we’ve uploaded images to social media sites to make it easy to share the images. These images are often in the Creative Commons, or otherwise owned by Dan, and Dan doesn’t care if you share them. Other images, videos, and audio on the site are copyrighted by the people who created that media, and I can’t grant use of their work.
