Cicadas

Searching through old e-mail folders, I turned up this wonderful picture my Dad took during last year's emergence of the seventeen-year cicadas:

I saw a handful this year, one or two of whom looked like stragglers. It must be terrible, spending all those years munching on tree roots, a hibernation, and finally heading out into the outside world, whereupon you discover you've overslept.
