When my DB was trimming a Catalpa tree he found a cicada clinging to the underside of a leaf. I brought it in last evening to draw it. I knew it was in the throes of death since it didn't budge when I touched it. They don't live long after they are out and about. I noticed it would move it's tail up and down. I wonder if it is a female emitting a phermone or was it just moving?? It startled me once when it moved a little. It's tiny feet skritching across the leaf. It didn't go far. I put it back outside when I was finished.
Happy Animal Wednesday to eveyone.
