Periodical Cicada (Brood X) - Magicicada septendecim

Periodical Cicada (Brood X) - Magicicada septendecim
Springfield, Virginia, USA
May 28, 2004
A 17-year cicada that emerged during late spring of 2004, a part of Brood X that swarmed over the Washington, D.C. area.

Magicicada septendecim to be specific.
If you look closely at the image, you can just barely make out the tell-tale red patch behind the eye and just in front of the forwing hinge. This is indicative of M. septendecim.
