Found some baby cicadas


I was going to post this in Pest Control, but I don't have a reason to see them as pests, and/or control them. I've never seen them so small before and thought I would post a few pics to show everyone else.

Next to my deck is a large tree. I was out on the deck working on some stuff and these little guys decided to come see what I was doing.

They do look like little helicopters. They walked real slow, and were curious about the camera. I don't know if they seen their reflection in the lens or what, but when I got real close, they would try to reach up and grab onto it.

Woah those are awesome! It's like a helicopter went too close to Fukushima and had babies.
