Amazon Cicada

The sun is just beginning to rise across horizon and this heralds the beginning of the morning. The Amazon is coming to life, and is filled with the sounds of the many animals that call it home. Among the first to wake from their nighttime revelry are the cicadas. Their wings beat furiously with the expectancy of the new day as they settle onto the trees nearby and then quickly take flight again. Their calls create a symphony that serves to wake up the rest of the animals from their slumber. Cicadas alternatively spelled as Cicala or Cicale, are insects in the order Hemiptera, suborder Auchenorrhyncha(which was formerly included in the now invalid suborder Homoptera). Cicadas are in the superfamily Cicadoidea. Their eyes are prominent, though not especially large, and set wide apart on the anterior lateral corners of the frons. The wings are well-developed, with conspicuous veins; in some species the wing membranes are wholly transparent, whereas in many others the proximal parts of the wings are clouded or opaque and some have no significantly clear areas on their wings at all. About 2,500 species of cicada have been described, and many remain to be described. Cicadas live in temperate-to-tropical climates where they are among the most-widely recognized of all insects, mainly due to their large size and unique sound. Cicadas are often colloquially called locusts, although they are unrelated to true locusts, which are various species of swarming grasshopper. Cicadas are related to leafhoppers and spittlebugs.
