Hi William,

Man that is a ton of cicadas! You really must be in the thick of it now. I can't help noticing that they seem to be congregating under lights. Not just periodicals but even annual cicadas can be readily found under lights especially on warm and human nights. Thanks for sharing your photos and giving us a data point.
