Cicada "Song"
 
Scene above is the male cicada "singing" (some refer to it as screeching!) to indicate he is looking for a mate. The female clicks her wings to signal her location.

Just got word from the copyright holder that I have permission to use the audio file John Styrsky indicated was the correct one for the brood (17 year) cicada. Yeah. I will happily be crediting cicada mania.com. It is a great resource that I consulted regularly in the process of creating this animation.
