Dog-Day Cicadas

Tibicen canicularis, Dog-Day Cicada, in my backyard last fall.

So, we never got any Brood XIV Magicicada this year, but I just heard my first dog-day cicada of the summer.

I'll be looking for their exit holes in the ground, and the husks they leave behind from their metamorphosis.

Thanks for the photo! I have only seen a cicada's outer shell once it has been shed, but I certainly love to listen to their evening concerts in the trees!
