I was engrossed in the series Girlboss on Netflix when out of the blue something landed on the door by the balcony and made a tapping sound. Paused Girlboss and took a look at it. Behold, it was one of the large insects you can see in summer. The ones that keep the heat vibrating with their strident buzz.
Can you name it? Yes, this is a cicada!
It distracted me a bit, but seeing one up close was kind of cool though. I was able to compare its size with my thumb and yeah it was just the same size as my thumb. What an interesting distraction!
