Cicada

By fishiee
The ear drums took a bit of a battering to get this shot! Normally an insect I hear but they're often impossible to find either high up a tree or in thick scrub, but this one was just sitting there on a tree trunk in a car park in Portugal and not at all bothered by a couple of photographers sticking lenses in it's face.

Quite an odd looking species. I guess a giant frog hopper!?
