The main cicada season has only begun, so these two may have emerged slightly too early:


They’re “ordinary” cicadas, not periodical cicadas, which certainly matters more to them than us.

Cicada 1 – ventral

Their topside armor would look great on a robot:

Cicada 2 - dorsal
Cicada 2 – dorsal

Found ’em dead on the driveway, alas.
