Cicada Magic

Cicadas are my other favorite insect, and thanks to Ugly Overload, I found this wonderful video!

Enjoy the wonder. There is a fairly extensive amount of info on Michigan Cicadas at the U of M website, including life cycle info.

This looks like a dog-day cicada to me, but it’s hard to tell from the video. Anyone?

Edited to add: In my excitement over the movie, I forgot to mention this is very sped up–the actual process can take hours. Source of the video is Wikipedia.

  1. Very cool – I’m partial to cicadas myself! :)

    It might be a dog-day cicada. Kind of has a greenish cast, but I’m not an expert here :P
