A few of you might have noticed the film crew following me around the Cicada Mania festival. They filmed me at the festival, as well as back in Jersey — a once in a life time (or maybe once in 17 years) experience. The news cast aired yesterday in Japan, but you might be able to see it on a show called “Morning Eye” in North America.
Here is the final news story:
Roy Troutman, Gerry Bunker and Joe Green also appear in the video.
The cicadas are just about gone in the Westmont and surrounding areas. I cant find any in the backyard. I can still hear some of them. And i can now hear the regular ones that come every year. I want to say that I am a bird person with 2 cockatiels but i also really loved those 17 year cicada. They were alot of fun to watch and pick up and they were so cute. I have 36 pictures of them from my old camera and about 16 pictues of them from my new digital camera that i bought a month ago and the pictures turned out excellent because i have the super macro function. I also have 9 mini movies i did of them because my camera can do mini movies accept the movies only average a minute. I might send one of the movies to UTUBE. So anyway the 17 year cicadas were so cute and i will keep my eye open to see if i can see the little white babies that come out soon and go back into the ground. Sheri Tuskey from Westmont, Illinois
