Author's notes

At least 4, maybe 5-6 Gang-gangs feasting on sluggish, 'dopey' Redeye Cicadas on a notably cool, overcast evening. Cicadas were plucked from trees, the juicy abdomens ripped out and consumed, before being unceremoniously dumped to the ground below. I picked up one such 'gutted' individual from the ground and took a photo. (I plucked its wings to stop it trying to fly, so I could get a reasonable photo, and then put it out of its misery afterwards).
