Bugs

Anyone know what kind of bug this is? It’s pretty big and lives in the trees. Makes a loud noise (in chorus with others of its kind) that’s between a creak and a buzz. I rarely see them– in fact, this one is not a bug but the empty, shedded exoskeleton.

    It’s a cicada! (Not sure if that’s how you spell it – but that’s definitely what it is!) They are all over the place by our house and they make the loudest noises. There are some that live under ground for 13 years and then all come out at the same time, but some come every year. Not sure what kind that is though…
    And anyway, congrats on this book! Keep us updated with how it goes!
    Love,
