Well, not really. They’re cicadas, which are not locusts at all.
It’s 13 year cicada time in Middle Tennessee. I was in Nashville for their last appearance and they were spectacular. You’d come across a tree with thousands of screaming cicadas. They were just getting hatched when I left Bell Buckle. Thor and I stopped at a rest stop and I got a few pics using my new camera. I even cropped them to make them a bit more interesting. I didn’t do any fancy digital finishing like sharpening or whatnot, but they still look pretty cool. You can also see them on this PicasaWeb site.
