Areas of Victoria are being devastated by plagues of locusts, but so far they do not seem to have reached here in huge numbers.  I am not sure of the difference between locusts and grasshoppers, but there do seem to be more grasshoppers around this year in my garden, so I caught a few when I was cutting the grass the other day.  Obviously difficult to photograph because they hop away when disturbed, I cooled mine in the fridge for 5 minutes, thinking it might slow them down… didn’t!

As usual, all taken with the Canon EOS550D, and 100mm macro lens.  f5.6, 1/200 sec ISO 400
