Okay, ya’ll.  I’m sorry for making this harder than I expected.  What was I thinking???  No winners, but thank you for making me laugh with some of your guesses.

I could drag this on just to see what you come up with next, but I want WINNERS!

Therefore, here are a few hints:

  1. You hear them on hot summer evenings.
  2. They have wings.

Want one of these?  Yes, yes you do!


The “contest” goes on until I have three winners!

The first three people to correctly identify what is pictured below – now with hints, and an expanded view of this “thing” – will win one copy each.  I will announce all the winners as an update to this post, as soon as I have three.

Cicada! I can go to bed and sleep easy now I know *grin*.

I love cicada’s and love the sound they make. Wonder if our species make the same noise as yours? I remember as a kid collecting the moulted skin ’cause it looked so cool. I got to see one moulting once as well.

    I love their sound too…as to the noise, all I know is when it’s late summer, they get so loud you can hardly have a discussion with someone if you’re outside. It almost gets to the point of being a crescendo! 🙂


How about a Cicada bug?!?
