An important life lesson: Don’t put very bright lights right next to a screen door! If you do, when you open the door all kinds of things will make a break for that beautiful, mesmerizing light.

Last night a cicada (and many other small insects) came inside and buzzed around for a while before I was able to catch it under a glass. I slipped a coaster underneath the mouth of the glass and carried the whole thing outside to let it go. Before the release I took a quick video of it buzzing around in the glass. It was quite a commotion!



We had to turn the light (a large paper cylinder) off and put it outside for a while to get all of the other insects out. The more you know!
