Emblem of Provence
Do you know this little singing insect? Did you know, that the cicada larva lives more than 17 years underground before ending up in the trees? There is so much to discover on this exciting subject of the animal kingdom. The male "sings" as they say. In fact, it scratches a sound organ located on its abdomen, called cymbals, to please females. But he generally expects the minimum temperature to be 22 °C to emit his particular sounds, so during the month of June in the Mediterranean region. The song of the cicadas is highly awaited in Provence, because it marks the beginning of the true summer which can coincide with that of the calendar.
