The creature most commonly called a locust is a cicada, or harvest fly.
The cicada, it will be remembered, is what is commonly called a locust.
I have alluded to the egg of the cicada "inserted in the bark of a twig."
It is true, Zenothemis, that the soul is nourished on ecstasy, as the cicada is nourished on dew.
Only in the trees is heard at intervals the whir of the cicada.
It is not improbable that the sting was made by a wasp (Stizus) which preys on the Cicada.
It is a specimen of game which I have just introduced, a Cicada, a luscious morsel.
There are few other sounds, for it is winter, and the tree-frog and cicada are silent.
And that very day she declared war on the Cicada and his kind.
She wanted to get that Cicada body into her den, to feed her young ones with it.
