I love singing insects

Crickets and Cicadas are always a fond memory to me. In the rainy nights at home in Kerala (which is most of the year) they sing incessantly. Any memory I have of my childhood nights are accompanied with their singing.

So, finding the same song here was quite refreshing. Here too, their song is starting to burn in my mind with so many memories. Some good, some bad.

Today they are so loud and prompted me to do some reading about them. I found two very interesting sites about cicada. One is http://www.cicadamania.com/cicadas/.

Here is an amazing video of the 17 year cicada emergence. It is wonderful.

Well, I am once again humbled by these small creatures, and glad that I have their voice to guide me through all those memories.
