Caption: Cicada (family Cicadidae). Cicadas have two pairs of large, membranous wings. The males produce loud noises by vibrating two membranes known as tymbals (not seen) at the base of the abdomen. This method of producing sound is known as stridulation and is rare in the insects. Cicadas usually inhabit trees, the females laying their eggs in the wood. The nymphs fall to the ground after hatching and bury underground to feed on juices from plant roots. They emerge as adults after a period of several years.
