Park Employees Re-Enact the Life-Cycle of Cicadas

Cicadas are active again. Like humans, they emerge from their underground burrows once every seventeen years to grow, shed their exoskeletons, and mate. You can see the similarities we share with this species in this video produced by the Forest Preserve District of DuPage County, Illinois. The employees re-enacted the life-cycle of the humble cicada.

The video production quality is remarkably good for a government institution and the mating scene tastefully expressed. I especially appreciate the entomological pick-up line that the male cicada uses on the female and plan to use it myself later today. After all, it clearly works.
