Photographer's Note

I found this old image of the Cicadas i captured one summer. They are atracted to noise as well as making it themselves. Tennessee was covered in them in 2011. They were emerging after their 17 year life underground. Mating is at hand. They will be dead before the fall leaves turn color. My friend had to use a tennis raquet to swat them away while cutting his grass with a riding lawn mower. if you look on youtube....(Ian eating a live cicada). I was in the room watching this bit a bravery.
