Cicada Emergence in Pictures
This article was published originally on 9/13/2013
Below is a series of photos taken by one of the luckiest and most observant guys I know. Jim Hill, ISU Extension & Outreach Program Coordinator in Hancock County spent part of last Saturday evening watching an annual cicada make the miraculous metamorphosis from nymph to adult. This particular individual is way behind schedule since most of the annual cicadas emerged back in July. And what a fortuitous coincidence that the emergence took place low to the ground for easier (and safe) photographing and while the camera was in hand.
