Your letter to the bugman:  I found these two Cicadas lying in the middle of the road and decided to get them out of harms way and get a closer look.  This is screen shot from a video.  The disengaged and flew off about 15 minutes later.  Then without harming another cicada, I made a video of him singing and this is a screen shot from that video with a closeup of the organ used to do it. It is the gray triangular area.  This cicada flew off as soon as I released its wings.
