California Cicada

Pin It

Don't believe it if you hear that Cicadas do not occur in California. They do. Taken in the River Park area of Sacramento, CA on June 24, 2007, this photo may have been taken by my son Joshua. We were both delightedly using my camera to get the best shot while this very docile creature didn't move at all. To find out more about cicadas, Google "cicadas in California".

I'm not big on insects, but I love the sound of cicadas on summer nights

I too love the sound of the cicadas, but never knew what they looked like until now, not what I was expecting!
