Summer Cicada

Hey everyone! A Summer evening just wouldn't be complete without the 'SKEEEEEE!!!' of Cicadas...believe it or not, some Cicada species produce their 'song' in volume in excess of 120dB...enough to cause hearing loss in humans if the Cicada sang right next to the human ear!

 

Have a wonderful, safe and fun weekend, everyone...the night skies will seem a bit empty without the sparkle of fireworks but the stars and planets will offer their own beauty~Venus and Jupiter line up with Aldebaran in a nearly perfect vertical line in the pre~dawn hours of tomorrow morning!
