Here's a cicadetta I watched moulting last year http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/161...
and here's how it looked an hour later http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/164...

No probably not albino. Most of these creatures come out of their last 'skin' (exuvia) wearing super bright colours then quickly go darker as they 'dry'. It takes maybe 45 minutes to gain normal colours usually. Good find.

Not albino, newly shed Periodical Cicada. Where in New York do you live, I live on Long Island and am hoping to see these!
