Cicada Season!

| | Comments (2)
We had another one of our work Christmas parties near the boat ramp on the western side of Lake Ginninderra on Friday afternoon.  It was a lovely day, and the BBQ went really well (thanks Stewie and Jeff!!).  Although I was feeling a bit nostalgic because it reminded me of so many MCSU Christmas BBQs in the past.. 

Anyways, as we were leaving we had to pass under trees full of black prince cicadas (that were peeing everywhere - eww! hehe).  

Of course they needed to be documented ;)

Update: pics are up on the RiotACT :)  I have to agree with the first commenter (actually I mentioned it to whoever would listen on Friday) - they're a much bigger thing in Sydney, so is nice to have them here sometimes too!
