Eastern Lubber Grasshoppers
Camera: K-1 Photo Location: side of the road 
Posted By: micromacro, 04-29-2017, 01:39 PM

I spotted the massive colony- nymphs and young grasshoppers- yesterday night.
Today I came back there with two lenses, flash, and DIY diffuser (keep forgetting to drop one in orders) quickly made of tomato sauce box, and water bottle.

The colony reduced in size significantly during the night, but there are still plenty of colorful guys.

Wow - nice work! Hope these guys don't chew up your garden (if they were nearby).

Paul, they chew all the bushes near the sidewalk. They are outside the community (not mine) near the water collector , but still close to residential area. It's across the road where I drive to watch bald eagle's nest.

Perhaps the pythons (or Chinese needle-snakes) can thin them out?


A very nice series--the fourth in the set is really hypnotic.

Perhaps some local snakes eat them. If so, there is endless food supply, more came out yesterday.

This is as close as I want to be to these "monsters"
