I had surprised a cicada orni crawling in the grass. As she can not fly out of the grass, she throws herself on her back and lingers for a few minutes until the danger is over. Here you can see the sting for the oviposition, so it is a female. There are an incredible number of species of this insect order, estimated at 200,000. They have conquered the whole world, there are hardly any ecological niches that are not populated by beak-pickles.
