This photo was taken at the Frenchman's Forest Natural Area. I found this male singing on a fallen pine tree. I had seen several adults on and around the trails this time of year.

This is a female (note the ovipositor - horn-like appendages - on the tip of the abdomen). Males and females seem to be able to make a bit of a hissing sound.

Another great shot...
Tony, will you please email me. I have an unrelated question to ask you. I really like your new website by the way.
