Ear Plugs Needed... PLEASE !!!

By Lynniesefforts  
I spotted this earsplitting demon cicada about 15 feet up the apple tree this afternoon...The daytime chorus is unbelievable...many many decibels !!!!

Thank you for all clicks and comments on my last upload The Hangover, it is always very much appreciated. Grin

That's a cracking picture from that range.
It's also the best looking bug of that type I've seen.
Usually they are sort of dusty and slightly bedraggled.
Good shot!

I liked catching these when I was a kid and making them squawk every summer.
Nice one Lynnette.

We have Cicada here in Kenya, they are loud and thousands of them.
Not as big, or loud as yours Lynette - thankfully!
Superb camera skills for this image, well done.
