The Sound of Summer

I was watering in the back garden when this guy crawled from a crack in the clay.  King of summer sounds, the cicada. 

And I'll share his serenade with you. Just click here Cicada songs via Cicadamania.com  and scroll down to the sound gallery.  You're welcome.

  1. Ha! I'm up first so must postpone the audio portion until after everyone is up, in order to survive the day. Not that I have any questions about what these little guys sound like. Even as my hearing fades some with age, these little fellas come through loud and clear.

  2. I love the sound of cicadas, the summer symphony.

  3. Great photo! They are so beautiful.

    It's wondrous, isn't it? The cicada summer mating, their song and rhythm, our delight and pleasure!

  5. Yes! The quintessential sound of summer. Would not be summer without them. Great photo:)
