As much as I absolutely hate these things when they fly at me, they are making for some great photo opportunities!

Very nice captures of those noisy, annoying insects. In the late summer, and they are so loud around my place it's almost deafening to go outside in the evening.

Lovely captures - they do look amazing when newly emerged.

Wonderful series.

I would love to witness a mass emergence like this!

Thank you all so much for the comments, it's greatly appreciated. I was really dreading this emergence, but now I'm actually a little intrigued by them. So crazy that soon they will be back under ground not to be seen for another 17 years. I may be singing a different tune once they start the mating calls and all that noise starts lol

Actually, they will all die after mating! Their offspring will live and grow up underground, and emerge in another 17 years.

Yea, I meant to say offspring in there. We had to sweep the sidewalk here at he office this morning, so many of the shells and half eaten Cicada's. We had one customer come in earlier and one fell on her as she was coming in, that was entertaining lol.

I took a few quick shots with my phone during lunch. The tree is right by our parking lot. If you look in the sunny area of the other shot you can see lots just laying there. They have just started flying a little so it should get interesting :p

The noise officially started today and it's only going to get louder. Anyone else have them currently? Making noise yet?
