Moved from Cicadas.

Was it larger than 2 inches?
This image is a bit dark (shaded). However, based on the narrow head, pattern and color, I suspect it could be Tibicen dealbatus, - however, there are a couple smaller usu. darker species with similar white patterns (i.e. T. bifidus & simplex).

 
Cicada Size
Body/head length was shorter than 2 inches.

 
Compare with these cicadas

2 inches or less including wings

The given size of less than 2 inches + the presence of the heavy dark "Z" in the wings helps eliminate T. dealbatus as an option.
