Periodical Cicada by Judy Wyatt

Periodical Cicada Emergence Underway

Residents of central Virginia are beginning to see and soon hear the resonating sounds of the 17 year cicada as they emerge from their reclusive home below ground to molt, mate, lay eggs and complete their live cycle.  This photograph was taken by Judy Wyatt, a Goochland Powhatan Master Gardener, at her Louisa County home in early May.
