Rotten, but not forgotten

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.

Watch these videos of Tibicen tibicen tibicen cicadas, aka a Swamp Cicada, formerly Tibicen chloromera.

Tibicen tibicen video by Dan.

Note that the music in this 1996 video has nothing to due with cicadas. It’s just crappy science fiction movie music:

Tibicen tibicen – Tibicen chloromera.
