I've been seeing a lot of large bugs just zipping around in the back yard the past couple of days. I guess the rain brought them out from wherever they were hiding. I never had one land where I could get a really good look at it, but from what I could see when they went zipping past, they looked like cicadas to me.

THis is a cicada hatch year, so it might be them.

By the way - and sometimes people really are this unaware - the hummingbirds are swarming and they can be mistaken for big bugs because of the buzzing way they fly if you're not looking carefully, and they are bright green. The first time I saw one right now I thought it was some huge wasp until I looked again.
