Observed in the Joppa Preserve, Great Trinity Forest in Dallas, Texas. This cicada was making a tremendous amount of noise, making locating him an easy proposition.
EDITOR’S NOTE (10-25-2013): It has recently been brought to my attention that this is likely a female cicada rather than a male. That would mean that this insect was not making the noise I reported hearing. I cannot remember enough about the original situation to explain my confusion.
