Cicadas of India

Filed under: India — Dan @ 7:13 pm

If you’re curious as to what cicadas in India look like, check out India Nature Watch, and visit their Cicadidae and Cicada pages. Try a search on their site too to reveal more.

This cicada is particularly pretty.

Update (2012), also visit The Cicadas of India Facebook group.

French cicada site

Filed under: France — Dan @ 8:44 am

Someone asked me for photos of cicadas from the south of France; my curiosity peaked, I did a search. Cigales is the French word for cicadas, and sud is the French word for south. I took fives years of French in school; I’ve forgotten a lot of it due to lack of use, but I remember those words. Searching sites written in French using Google I came across: Cigale à Porquerolles, insecte de provence, sur la côte méditerranéenne.

Considering the large number of illustrations, photos and information Cigale à Porquerolles, insecte de provence, sur la côte méditerranéenne is essentially the French Cicada Mania — in fact, it’s better than that. It’s the French Massachusetts Cicadas.

Check the site out. Even if you can’t read French, the photos and illustrations speak for themselves, and you’ll get a chance to see what cicadas look like in France.

Meet Semi-Ningen, star of the Japanese monster movie Ultra Q Episode 16 “The Revenge of Garamon”. He’s part Cicada, part human, and all scary.

Shake on it?, originally uploaded by RedYoda.

Semi Ningen (Cicada-Human) is dispatched to earth, disguised as a human man, by his evil alien Cicada brethren and tasked with controlling (2) Garamon to create all kinds of general havoc in Tokyo.
