Still no Cicada Killers at Pine Grove

Cicada shell

I decided to head out immediately after work today in my "good clothese" to see what there is to see with my new cool camera. I decided to head on over to Pine Grove Cemetery in Westford to see if the Cicada Killers have emerged yet.

NOTHING! I'm getting pretty bummed out from the lack of Cicada Killers. Maybe the season is still too early here for them. I have been getting reports that they have been out since June in other parts of the country. I wonder if the grounds-keeper here has managed to kill them? If he did that would be pretty tough to do.

T. canicularisI did discover this T. canicularis female nymph skin on a pine tree at the cemetery which is surprising since this is the first type of specimen I've ever found here. Maybe if I visit this place more often, I'll actually find some live specimans! Oh well, click the thumbnail to enlarge.
