Dog-day Cicada..

While taking our dog for a walk on the weekend, in our park, she was attracted to something in the grass.
This fellow was another 'first' for me..couldn't believe how big he was for a 'bug'.
Neat to see though, according to my bug book, is a southern Ontario resident.
I got a few pics before he flew off...
