As promised, a mouldy bug awaits you this Sunday morning.

Or afternoon, if you have had a good Saturday night.....or are a teenager. My son could have slept for England at that age, if only they made it a professional sport, eh?

Anyway, enough of my fascinating family life, and here is the insect as promised.

This is a yellow spotted Cicada; These unique creatures only live for a couple of months maximum (but they can spend years underground as nymphs), and spend that time looking for a mate and avoiding predators. Many simply die where they sit, and can be found with mould growing over their body parts, giving them a surreal appearance, as in the photo.
