At the Bakery;

  *Cicadas;  熊蟬(kuma-zemi, bear-cicada) and 油蝉(abura-zemi,oil-cicada) *
Early this month at the bakery, my husband surprised me finding lots of cicadas perching on the tree♪ He said most of them were  Cryptotympana facialis and only one large brown cicada (Graptopsaltria nigrofuscata) 



          Left-side of the three is only one large brown cicada we found;
Linking this post to"Saturday's critters",  and "Nature Notes"

Thank you very much for stopping by; I always appreciate your sweet visits;
(About my header; sorry if unmatched, changed for the newer post

I've thought my face trouble is only from cosmetic. But this morning, third dermatologist pointed out the burn from ultraviolet as well.  I've never had this experience and must be cautious being outside.  Hope the medicine works this time...

Hello Miyako, wow there are a lot of cicadas on those trees. I have not seen that many together out in the open. It looks creepy. I did have one land on me the other day. I hope you feel better soon, maybe wear a hat outside and sunscreen?
Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

Gosh! They look so big. Have a lovely weekend.

Dearest Miyako, the cicadas are such a nice metallic green (and brown, fancier wings). We don't see them here but there were lots where I grew up in Texas, and they would make a lot of noise with their chirping, though it would become just another background noise. Do you hear them at night? Hugs from the PNW , Hannah

We had lots of cicadas when I was growing up as we lived very near the bush. They were difficult to see but they sure made a noise. I like the photos of them.
Have a lovely day,

Diana

Your new header is very impressive, Miyako. I love the sound of the cicadas, and I remember as a child collecting the shells left behind. Have a wonderful weekend, my good friend. Hugs from Texas.

Hi Miayko, I hear cicadas all the time but don't see so many.

But I did startle one last week. It flew across the trail, and a little yellow finch went right after it. But then the birdie saw me and flew away...I only got one blurry pic.

I have heard them, but don't think I've ever seen them... Or at least if I did, I didn't know what they were. Very interesting to learn. Thank you to you and your husband! Hope you feel better soon.

Wow, that's an amazing sight. I would love to see that in person. Nice shots. :)

Dearest Miyako,
Never have seen that many on a tree like you show us here!
Sending you hugs,
Mariette

It's interesting to see them, we don't have them here. I hope you will feel better soon, dear Miyako.

Wow, I've never seen a Cicada though I've stayed in a hotel with that name. There are so many on the tree and they look rather large, like a gigantic grasshopper.

That's a lot of cicadas together...! Didn't know they hang out together like that. They must be enjoying life before summer ends :-)
Oh maybe your skin couldn't bear strong sunshine.. I hope medication will work and your condition gets better. Sending hugs xoxo Tamago
