Looks like I forgot how to do it.

The bug is still on my window!

Anheuser's warning
one too many Busch can make a mantis look like acicada!

I think
not a cicada, how about something like Gonatista grisea (Grizzled Mantid)?

That's it.
Bingo! That's the one. Still on the screen where it was 2 hours ago.

This is a grizzled mantis. VERY cool bugs!!!

Thanks for the quick replies.
It is pretty cool.
