    We do not have those around here!

    Maybe a cicada? "Periodic cicada", I think is the sub-species it might be.

    .Kingdom: Animalia
    Phylum: Arthropoda
    Class:Insecta
    Order: Homoptera
    Family: Cicadidae

    Found this, from your region, plus another report that said they were "out" on July 10 in your area. http://ag.arizona.edu/maricopa/garden/html/t-tips/bugs/cicada.htm

    Apparently you've never been around for one of the 17 year cicada cycles. These things cover every inch of ground, trees, cars, road, and every cubic inch of air.

    Luckily for you I'd say we have at least 12 years until the next cycle.


    Of course there's the 12 year cycle as well... :p

    It's always fun when you get swarms. Every few years here we get swarms of Mormon Crickets so thick that the roads get slick.

    Yeah my wife got attacked by one last night and totally freaked out. you don't really need a macro to take a picture of those bugs lol. The ones up here look a bit different. They are more green and their eyes are black.
