Walker’s Cicada is one of the largest cicadas in the US measuring up to 4" (10 cm) long. This one was nearly 3" (7.5 cm). Specific colors vary in different regions. This one had a base color on the head and thorax of bright green with patches of light brown and black. The abdomen is black and the wings clear with green veins.
I photographed this cicada in its natural habitat — the screen on our front door in Omaha, Nebraska, USA (300 masl).
Always a reminder of the Ecuadorian Amazon when we hear the cicadas singing. It returned to the screen 3 nights in a row.
