Return of the cicadas

They're back! After 17 years, the cicadas have returned to disgust us. Living in the middle of an urban jungle, I hadn't seen any until I went down to Beverly over the weekend. As one of Chicago's older neighborhoods, Beverly has dozens of beautiful old trees that are prime habitats for those pesky insects.
