To be seen and heard

The week before last, I began seeing the cicadas. This after three or four weeks of hearing, but not seeing them.

Surprisingly, the cumulative effect of the cicadas' chirps, as heard in an open space, were that of a distant Star Trek phaser from Star Trek being constantly discharged.  That chirp was quite different, sharp and cutting when heard from a close proximity.

These three cicada wings were left on our front walk.  I haven't seen signs of any since.
