A few years ago, it was the time of the 17 Year Locusts, which really are cicadas. The live under trees for 17 years going through whatever metamorphic stages cicadas go through, then they come out, eat a lot and mate like there is no tomorrow, which actually is the case......Then the lay eggs, and die, and the cycle starts all over again. When they are out flying around, they make a noise like a 1950's science fiction movie, and if you are driving, they dive bomb your windshield. Dog owners are warned to keep them inside, because they will eat the buggers, lots of them, and then get sick.
Well, I saw a pair doing "it" and I just had to shoot them in the act.
I was tempted to classify this as having adult content............
