Cicada Orni

By Metro6R4  
These Alien looking insects are what all the noise is all about in Portugal.

They make a clicking/rattling sound in their body in large numbers in the day causing quite a sound.

They are very hard to see & when you approach the noise they all stop.............

4cm in length.

Many thanks for all your votes & award (Ann) on my Jumping spider yesterday........
