I have posted pictures of this cicada several times because he is just a photographic gem. What I have not posted, until now, are several pictures of this cicada crawling around on Laci’s arm and hand. She had no trouble handling this bug, which is much more than I could say for myself. I do not really like to have bugs crawling on me. When we were in Michigan earlier this year, the gnats continually got tangled in our hair – that was not pleasant at all. With the cicada, I would say no, thank you, to an offer to play with or otherwise touch the bug. I like taking the pictures but that is as close as I want to get.
Not only would Laci hold the cicada, she even made an offer to eat the cicada as a snack. I know she said that just to tease me. At least, I think she said that to tease me. The cicada disappeared shortly thereafter, never to return. Hmmm, I wonder?
