Close up view of a Cicada Killer
A smaller cicada killer - we didn't dare get any closer to the swarm. Average size was that of a baby hummingbird.
this is one of the "mounds" found where I see these Cicada Killer's
This time of year we get quite a few of these. Won't bother you if you don't bother them.
Bad picture, but the back-lighting shows the hooks this wasp carries cicadas with.
Wedged between the glass and screen on our door leading to our backyard...August 6th, 2009 in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Female with prey - I heard the cicada 'scream' as it fell from the tree and grabbed my camera.
Cicada Killer with prey.
Caught two 2 of these carrying cicadas today, 5 minutes apart. This one is cleaning itself while perched on it's prey.
