Maya found this and was somewhat startled, but fascinated by this cicada on a tree in the park. Grandpa had previously brought over a cicada larva skin, and a dead adult, and I had explained about the connection between these and the buzzing high in the July and August trees!

While we were examining this new find, I reminded her of our previous talk, and commented that "this one is alive". After a fairly long pause ---- "How do you know it is alive? It isn't moving." The answer remains a mystery because after some thought I decided it was not a good lesson to poke it to make it move ---- ???????
