First Official Cicada Sighting In Nashville!
Last night, a group of immature cicadas broke ranks and emerged ahead of schedule. They apparently wanted to be in the spotlight...to garner as much publicity as possible before billions of their cousins emerged and overshadowed them. The group of cicadas (who called themselves the Red-Eyed-Five) emerged at the top of Music Row in Nashville, TN, striking provocative poses on one of the city’s most famous sculptures. Birds swiftly swooped down on the youngsters, leaving nothing but droppings behind. Ignoring the fact that there is safety in numbers, these foolish pranksters managed to get their 15 seconds of fame before their untimely demise.
