Spotted in Prairie Village: A cicada emerging from the ground

The familiar din of a northeast Johnson County August has been growing over the past several days, as thousands and thousands of cicadas emerge from their burrows in the ground, shed their exoskeleton, and begin their noisy, short breeding season.

We caught this video of cicada heading toward an oak tree to emerge from its shell earlier this week:

If you get any good pics or video of this year’s cicadas, we’d love to share them with our readers. Send them our way!
