I have a theory that cicadas are so large and devote so much of their energy to making noise that they really prefer not to fly unless they feel really threatened. This makes sneaking up on them easy.

Excellent macrophoto. I note your cicada doesn't have red eyes. Ours do.
I seem to recall seeing cicadas with red eyes somewhere, but it may have been in photos from your end of the world.
