Last Monday, I wandered over to the Monroe County courthouse grounds in downtown Bloomington to check the status of cicadas. I saw a cute bunny rabbit, but no cicadas.
On Saturday, I noticed a few cicada shells clinging to the face of the the Alexander Monument when I was covering the rally for the arts. So I figured on Sunday afternoon I would check again.
What a difference a week made. After the jump is a set of cicada photos I took on the courthouse grounds. And here’s my best poetic effort on the topic:
Cicada-ville: A bad haiku on zoning
Bug-eyed pest cracks forth
Leaves shell vacant, sad, lonely
