The other day I found this:
... attached to one of the logs in our stack of wood.
My whole life I've thought it was a locust shell. I've been told it was a locust shell.
Today, I found this ...
... flying around in my office.
At first I thought it was a monster fly. Then, after I caught it in a jar, I thought it was a locust.
It's neither. It's a cicada.
A locust looks like a grasshopper.
