I'm sure this one is Rambo's Cicadas ! In her little town, under trees, that's how her friends call her ... Or him. Because Rambo is not a female. We all agree with this...
Or a very combative female.
Rainy and sunny sunday time to dear friends. Pics took with my cell.
So, I was cooking when ... Yes, I was cooking ... Oh, for sure, I would prefer begin my story this way :
I was having a lie-down, in front of my swimming pool, with a glass of fresh white wine in hand, and watching at my HUGE TV when ...
But, this is not my life.
SO I WAS COOKING ... (Ooooh, good job, I feel frustrated now !) when I heard a little "creeecreee", prudent, low and very courageous.
You have to know that a cicada has a very hard life ! She stays, buried underground for years ! Between 5 and 10 years !! Some american cicadas can stay underground for 17 years !!
Then, one day, they feel it's time...
Heat is calling them : "CICADAAAAAAAAS !! COME OUT !".
Then, those poor cicadas just will live for one short month outside !
They l have a huge challenge on their shoulders ! THEY HAVE TO MAKE THEIR LIFE !
Can you imagine ??
For years, you're preparing yourself, for just one month ?
And during this month, you must :
- Change your skin...
- Play cymbal ...
- Have sex ! ...
- And lay just 500 eggs !!!
So they get out for one short month.
Can you imagine if this month is windy, cold and rainy ? They fail their life !
"OK, boys, don't-get-out ! I repeat : DON'T-GET-OUT ! We've been duped ! I repeat "WE-VE-BEEN-DUPED !"
And you think you've got a hard life ?
I just say : Respect for cicadas. They are the biggest warrior on earth !
End of my sheer lunacy.
