Cicadas on the fly

I first heard cicadas singing a week or so ago in the juniper/cactus grasslands near Canon City. Today as I drove through they were up and flying. I saw several dozen cicadas flying in about 2 miles of habitat. And many were singing away including these two. I think these are Cacama or Cactus Dodger--"They are known for their affinity for cacti like prickly pear & cholla..." which fits as there was both of these species of cactus in abundance in this location.
