The Xerces Society
Everybody has his or her own treasured experience of insects -- a nighttime lit by
fireflies, the sight of monarchs clustered for the winter…full story here.
PLT: below - Definitely not cicadas, but an unidentified swarm of rather hard-backed,
flying insects which gathered on a vehicle in my yard on a warm day in April, then died.
Recognize them? Let me know if you know what they are! Thanks!
Below is a response I got when I posted the last photo on an online bug i.d. website.
