Hello,
Attaching two pictures (hopefully they go through…my internet is bad!)
Found this guy on my shoe this morning. I’m in Wakiso District Uganda, just outside of Kampala. Can you help me identify him/her?
Cheers!

Hi Beth,
This is not a beetle, but a Cicada, a group of insects known for the loud sounds they produce, often from the tops of trees.  Your individual is  dead ringer for the individual in this Wikimedia Commons image also from Uganda.
