Caption: 17-year cicadas, close-up footage. These are dwarf cicadas (Magicicada cassini), a periodical cicada. Periodical cicadas have an extremely long cycle, in this case seventeen years. They are known as periodical cicadas because nearly all members of a population mature into adults in the same year. Periodical cicadas are found in the mid-West and eastern USA. This collection was taken in one hour at nightfall near Lawrence, Kansas, USA, on 18 June 2015. These cicadas emerged at the end of this cycle of Brood 4 (the name for the Kansan brood).
