Cicadas Arrive in Northern Virginia

Usually the only bugs we talk about here are dead bugs (components with their leads up on circuit boards) or perhaps CW keying devices.  But in the last podcast I mentioned  the arrival in Northern Virginia of Brood X Cicadas.  They are coming to the surface after 17 years underground.  This morning I found this amazing animation that explains the lifecycle of these fascinating creatures. 

This morning Elisa mercifully took the time to take several dozen of them off the tires of her car.  

Here is the animation.  Just scroll down to follow the life cycle. 

Be sure to turn on the audio!
