Cruising Cicada Launches Into Slipstream at 65 MPH

While driving on the interstate yesterday I noticed a cicada on my rear view mirror. Don’t know how it got there but was super impressed that it was hanging on at 65 MPH.

My guess is that the cicada must have been inside the mirror. That it could climb out and hang on for as long as it did was amazing. BUT, there is always a but in there somewhere, but when the wind caught it, it launched going from 65 MPH to zero in short order.

Anyway, it was a unique experience. This year we have had many unique experiences with Brood X.
