Except this isn’t the love boat. It is the annual invasion of the Lubbber Grasshoppers, (Romalea guttata). The are about 3 inches long and they are all over some of the country roads out here in west Texas. They are mostly in “pairs”. I was on a road near the Twin Buttes Reservoir yesterday, and I don’t know how many honey-mooning families I wiped out because the highway was covered with them. I decided to get a nice photo of the action, though.
Photographed with my Canon EOS 7D and Canon 100-400mm lens, from about 8 feet. Exposure 1/640 sec. @ f11, +0.3EV, ISO 320. Hand-held. Cklick on the image to see an enlargement.
