Here in the northeastern U.S., we have the famous Brood X periodical cicadas, who emerge every 17 years. Here’s the first one I spotted, on a picnic a couple of weeks ago.

For the six weeks or so that they’re alive and mating, they buzz/hum loudly enough to be heard indoors if you’re close to a wooded area.


I like your observation of nature. When my wife and I went to pick mushrooms, we saw a lot of different beetles that we had not seen before.

While checking out which damselfy it was I came across this short video of Banded Demoiselles from the British Dragonfly Society:
