Dreaded Locust – after several days of sometimes quite intense storms, these have appeared ! I hope there are only a few…….
Sorry that the focus is not that good, it was a very quick grab shot (in find camera and run out again, all before it took flight)

An interesting looking insect, even if voracious. Strange feet, for instance. I wonder what those knobs do.
Maybe suction…? you have me intrigued!
Simply superb! Love all the detail especially his criss-cross eye pattern.
It was not happy with me being so close (Nikkor 55mm f2.8 AIS Micro Lens)
A brilliant picture!
Thank you – pleased you liked it.
Fantastic shot……and the focus looks excellent on my little Mac Pro screen.
Thanks, one of those times when everything needs to be done in a hurry…
There’s never just “a few” of them.
Can live in hope……..
He looks like a hungry little bugger. Hope they don’t stick around long. I know the damage they can do.
Yes it does doesn’t it: friends of mine had their garden stripped several years back, so fingers crossed.
