    Great informative video with a wealth of information on the life cycle of this magical cicada. I’ve told every one to watch it and send the link around, then dragged my poor husband up East Mountain till we found some of the beauties and could hear many more a bit further than we could go. What an adventure. Thank you or presenting it with such pleasure and fun.
