Cicada singing. Double Drummers are one of the largest and noisiest cicadas in Australia. When a large number sing in unison, the sound is so loud that it can be unbearable. Thopa saccata is found in Queensland and New South Wales. The male cicada produces a call from the drum like "tymbals" on the sides of the abdominal base. This lets a female (and other males) know where he is. This is one of the loudest cicada and while shooting the footage I recoded 90+db and had to ware earplugs.
