Summer sights and sounds

Brilliant sunshine.


(more cicada song and sightings this year

than I remember, ever?)

Lazy day.

Christmas holidays have begun.

More on cicadas
from wikipedia:

Some cicadas produce sounds up to 120 dB, among the 
loudest of all insect-produced sounds. This is notable because the song 
is loud enough to cause permanent hearing loss in humans 
should the cicada sing just outside the listener's ear.

And I would believe it!

Our third child finds the cicadas to be very noisy!
