Let the Mating Commence
This is a new Cicada awaiting the opportunity to copulate. These insects make a very annoying noise as they await the opportunity to couple.
This image clearly shows the holes in the soil where the new babies emerged from their thirteen year wait here in West Bibb County Georgia.
Now we can enjoy their mating calls for a brief period of time and we can all mark our schedules for 2024 when the next generation will await their mating opportunity.
