Snowy Tree Cricket singing

I thought this might be a cricket-it certainly sounds like one. It was on the wall outside the bathroom door. The wings are so fantastic & I couldn’t find any photos quite like this, so I’d appreciate help on this one too. Thanks! Just outside of Walnut Springs, TX.

Hi Laureen,
What a gorgeous photo. It is our favorite in a long time. It depicts a Snowy Tree Cricket, Oecanthus fultoni, singing away. This cricket is also known as a Thermometer Cricket as it is possible to tell the temperature according to the number of chirps.
