Every 17 years they come out by the millions. Their mating ritual involves climbing out of the ground as nymphs to morph into adult Cicada's. They climb high into the trees and their buzzing can be heard for miles. Such was the case last spring on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Cicadas were everywhere, dead on the road, flying into windshields, eating up the foliage and buzzing so loud, people had to move into motels or with friends to get some peace and quiet far from Mashpee, Ma.
I jumped out of my car when I heard the deafening racket. Here are Cicada's up close.
