Yummy Cicada

As Jack pointed out to me, Cicadas have been in the news quite a bit lately because they are now emerging in countless numbers after seventeen years of underground living. I don't particularly care for them due to their size, but I know many of you do. So, for all you cicada-lovers, here is a picture of one being eaten by my new favorite monkey. Monkeys really do serve a purpose.

That looks like a Gremlin to me.

This is one of those unfortunate circumstances...bring in the crazed monkeys to eat the annoying cicadas, and then you end up with a bunch of crazed, hungry monkeys.

We have annual cicadas in our neck o' the desert, and the most annoying thing about them is that when they start singing, you know that the weather is officially HOT.

Hmm. Sounds like a Simpsons scenario.

EEK! Another primate with big hair, eating one of our insect-friends... this one is straight out of my nightmares. ;)

I wonder what it looked like as a larvae ;-p

And I wonder if they lived underground cicada-style...
