My catch of the day

Almost the pilot portrait I strive for!

eastern lubber, scientific name: Romalea microptera

These have a voracious appetite and can strip a plant in a matter of hours. They hatch in clutches of as many as 50 little black with yellow spot innocuous looking grasshoppers. We routinely have 10 or more of the clutches hatch each year and are continually on the hunt to spray them.

I was lucky to grab this photo as my wife ran outside to dispatch this one to bug heaven. She was clinging to my birdbath photography window. (The Lubber, not my wife)
