Cicada on my steps

When coming home from shopping just now, I was startled to see this cicada on my steps. I almost stepped on it by accident. Instead, I gave it a gentle nudge, and it flew off into the sky seeking a better abode.

  1. I think it is beautiful – the patterns on the wings are incredible. I have never seen a cicada like that, perhaps it is a species that exists only in Asia.

  2. Maybe so. I heard your cicada only come out once every 17 years. Ours come out every summer. I don’t know what the difference is. I also think it is rather beautiful looking.
