I walked outside to check the kiln. There are so many cicadas in the trees these days that I've grown sort of numb to the sound of them. But the buzzing was VERY close to my head, and Breeze even jumped up and ran over to check it out.
It was two insects flying erratically in tandem -- a cicada and a cicada killer wasp. This drama is taking place ten feet outside my shop window as I write this...
