first found this season... last year it was all females and a struggle to find a male. This year, a male first up. While under the microscope and hanging from the lid of the petri dish, he obligingly provided good evidence of being a male! (see photos 8, 7, 6) The antennae are only barely plumose

Has anyone done a study of cicadas flying and obstacle avoidance ability? These guys seem to do headlong collisions with the fence, and then they can't back out - the third one here was still moving so I pulled it back out.

Not my observation, but noticed it on the site http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11307026

Sharing as I could not find an example by searching Wairarapa or Stanwellia.

Matt Charlton a Tararua district earth works business owner was clearing forestry for a road at Pongaroa with a worker when he came across a very large spider "bigger than his hand"...
