DC metropolitan area peeps. Do you remember these guys?
Some cicadas are coming out this year already. Two days ago I noticed many shells on trees, walls and random vertical surfaces. I thought it was a bit early for cicadas. The yearly ones, big green/brown, don’t show up until July or so. Then, it is last morning (5/16/2017) where I saw this guy on the bush in front of my door. Darker body and red eyes. Last time they invaded the area it was 2004, so I thought this year was IT again. However, specialists on the news said this is just a few that come out earlier. So this is just a little preview of the 3 Billion that is expected to hatch in 4 years from now.
