HUGE winged bug
Dear bugman,
After hearing a kind of a thud, I looked out and saw this bug had landed on my window screen. After the creepyness wore off, I was intrigued. I was able to take some pictures before my cat took notice and scared it away. It’s a bit dark, but would you be able to help me ID this bug. I could only see it from underneath, so I can’t say much about what it looks like. It was kind of dirty olive coloured, about 3cm long without wings, 4cm with wings. I’ve never seen a big winged bug like that! It looked like a giant fly. Thanks! I’m attaching a couple of pics. cheers!

The silhouette is definitely that of a Cicada.
