Tibicen tibicen (=T. chloromera)
Tibicen Tibicen (syn. Tibicen chloromera) - TENERAL
Green eyes are key feature to this species - coupled with the green pronotal patches and pinkish-green body while teneral!

Since your picture is of a teneral (soft/newly emerged), I suggest reviewing the images below.

refer to the following images:

Just browsed
through the cicada page and found some similar images under the genus, tibicen. I can't say that's what it is, but it's a place to start.

Great shots, Bill!
I can't give you an ID, but I am curious as to the time frame for all the shots. It's an awesome sequence. We had M. septendecim here in Northumberland county this year. Those were black and red.

 
Start to finish a little over
Start to finish a little over one hour. I found her clmbing and after the back split I went out every ten minites or so. I'm fairly certain it's a dog day harvestfly (Tibicen canicularis).

 
Thanks for
the info, Bill. It didn't take as long as I had thought it would.
