Lite Stick Hitch Hiker

Saw something fly into my Stick last night while flying in the back yard. Appears a 17 year Cicada found it's way to the plane. Must have flown through the prop as one of his large wings was missing.
My back yard is riddled with these things. Surprised this was the first one I hit.

Yope, live about 20 miles north/west of Pittsburgh PA. This is the 17 year Cicada. ( only comes out once every 17 years) No need looking with flash lights for these guys. They came out by litterly the 100s of thousands, if not millions. The neighbor shoveld 2 wheelbarrow loads from his back yard the other day.

Man those things looks like fake gag insects, lol. I know how huge swarms of insects goes. When my dad lived in sacremento I went there and visited right in the middle of some bizarre thing crickets do every once in a while. After dusk the ground was covered with them, its like the grass was turned into crickets. One day I went to the pool before dark, and stayed untill after dark, and forgot to bring my shoes! :eek I had to walk back to the apartment barefoot through it all! Those things got inside all the time too, no matter what you did to keep them out.
