What's This Bug?

An early morning walk around the yard after a night of rain yielded some interesting sights, not the least of which is this bug.

The grandgirls and I spent an hour searching bug sites on the Internet and haven't exactly identified it yet.

Do you know what it is? Post a comment or email me at mollyday1@gmail.com. Thanks.

It looks like a cicada to me. It might be the seventeen year cicada who, in the larval stage, burrows into the ground to emerge as an adult many years later. Look up "cicada' and I believe you will find one that looks very close to this one.

That looks like a blue moon cicada.
