Rocks and bugs

Today's Photo hunt was rock. Here are our examples.

This is Angel and Kirby playing with a round rock from my family farm. It rolls like a ball and they chase it all over.

Then Mom found this big bug on the rocks around the flower bed. It is a cicada or a locus.
This is a close up of him! He is really ugly!
These are the holes he and a friend came out of. Mom stuck her finger in one of the holes and it fit with lots of room!

That rock looks like it's a lot of fun! The bug makes our Mom very queasy, though!

We like the rock pictures. The bug would be fun to play with though we think.

Rock...OK. Bug..FUN...for us. We see those here. Tommy runs the other way. Humans.

We have never seen bugs that big. We bet they crunch well.

She stuck her finger in there? WHAT the?? No way would you get me to do that! No way!

My cats used to play with stones too. It used to crack me up!

Our Mommy agrees, that buggy is icky! We'd sniff at it but probably would ignore it after that. We like grasshoppers better. The round rock looks like fun, we must get Mommy to get us one. (Sometimes the simple toys are the best, right?)

Purrs and hugs,

Interesting bug! We loves to eat the bugs! Especially Spooky!

My mom is chicken and would be afraid of spiders in a hole!

I like eating bugs.

Meowmy says that's an annual cicada, not one of those 13- or 16-year cicadas. Up 'til now it hasn't been hot enough for them to come out in Virginia and start singing...a true mid summer sound for us! And we can tell all you other kitties that they are delicious...nice and crunchy, lots of meat...hmmm wonder why Meowmy is looking sort of green??

Oh that bug was yucky - I have to say that although we get the annual cicadas (and the 17 year but that is a diffferent story) we don't usually see them because they are up high in the trees. That picture makes me glad they stay there!
