What kind of bug is this?
We found this bug in our garden. We live in La Habra, CA (Orange County, near LA). It didn’t move much and started making a barely audible, high pitched, sound before it took off. It was about an inch long.
Thanks,
Pete

Hi Pete,
This is a Cicada. Western species are not as large as eastern species and tropical species get very large.
