The Brood II Periodical Cicadas have emerged by their untold millions on the East Coast of the United States. Their continuous buzzing was the soundscape of a weekend trip to Virginia. Above, this mated pair was a tangle of wings.
These cicadas showed a strong preference for truck tires.
After a few frenzied weeks, the magicicadas will slowly die off. The next generation of Brood II will not be seen until 2030.
