Photo of the Day: Cicadas Are Howling at Carvins Cove

My friend Chick.
The little guy on the bow of my kayak a little while ago is a cicada. They are much in evidence at Carvins Cove these days, sounding like an extraterrestrial craft landing. They can be extremely loud and I'm impressed with how they harmonize. This little fellow had gotten himself into the water and looked like he was drowning. I picked him up with a paddle, photographed him, picked him up again with the paddle and flipped him up in the air so he could fly away. He did. Guess I probably shouldn't have done that, given the damage these boys do, but he did me a favor posing and I felt obliged to return it.
