Spring fishfly

7350.        Flew very silently into nearby tree after a while of being on my thumb. Found on screen door, plucked gently off of it and placed on thumb. Was wondering, what is it? It looks pretty cool, but my family is arguing about it being a type of grasshopper or moth. Personally I was going for a type of cicada, but it made no noise after being found or before. Owen Sound, Ontario. Canada
