Your letter to the bugman: Found this specimen in my pool when I noticed a lot of splashing. Seems it drops from my tree because of wind. Had a little mouth and big eyes.

We were going to comment that this is a very late season sighting of a Cicada, and we realized you shot the image in September. We do not recognize your Cicada. It is quite dark in color, but we suspect it is one of the Annual Cicadas in the genus Neotibicen which is well represented on BugGuide. Because of your kindness in preventing this individual from drowning, we are tagging this posting with the Bug Humanitarian Award.
