Cicada

A cicada crawling across our driveway. During the later part of the Az monsoon (that’s now) we see and hear large numbers of these insects. They spend most of their lives underground. During the monsoon season they emerge and transform into this flying form to mate and lay eggs. The racket they make, mostly in the evening, is to attract a mate.
Our rat terrier Suzie caught and ate a few of these today. The exoskeleton crunches like popcorn when she chewed it up.
