I Feel So Foolish
I am very familiar with cicadas. When I lived in Zambia we could set our watch by the cicadas that cranked up at the exact same time every day to a deafening level. In Chicago we have the dog day cicadas as well as the 17 year eruption. But I have to confess I have absolutely no recollection of hearing a cicada in Tucson and yet here is the proof, the exuvium of a newly emerged cicada right in my yard. How could I have missed them?
