Tibicen cicada
Most likely a Tibicen canicularis. You can use other websites to help you ID it down to species better. Judging from the lack of bowed wings, I'm turning away from T. linnei (though this maybe subject to variation). Likewise, these species are fairly hard to separate unless a good ventral shot can be taken.

cicada
This is a dog day cicada, a species in the genus tibicen. Cicadas have an extremely loud buzzing call that you have probably heard a lot.
