Summer is almost over... or Buzz Off

The cicada or "semi" in Japanese are still out making plenty of noise. Their summer singing is one of the unique things I will always remember about being in Japan.  Their songs are almost deafening in the middle of summer even in a small Tokyo park. However, as the temperatures drop, their songs start to fade. This semi was spotted by my wife while we were in Rinshi No Mori Park in Meguro.

Anyway, I wish I had my macro lens with me, but it wasn't to be.

There's a really good post on cicadas in Japan at the Tsukublog - What's the Buzz About.
