Bringing home the bacon....I mean cicado.


It worked and worked....


it was trying to take it under the porch.  It did not succeed.  But not for lack of effort.

I really hate wasps, hornets, yellow jackets--- and whatever this godzilla guy is. But I really love bees. Powerful pictures.

It looks like it almost had it there for a minute. Nature can be fascinating to watch

It is trying to carry something as big as itself. Did it abandon the bacon?

These are spectacular close up images of this poor cicada losing the battle. I feel sorry for them. They don't even eat after for the short term that they have reached maturity and are flying about. A great series!

That first picture is amazing, Rose. Nel told me that she used to hear the Cicadas in her back yard all the time in Georgia. They're so unusual looking, aren't they?
