Here are my latest North Eastern Lubber Grasshopper photographs, using the Galaxy S5 as my lens for nature photography.

While walking my dogs, I had an opportunity to finally see an adult lubber grasshopper.

The adult lubber grasshopper has a yellow-orange shell and is twice the size of a juvenile lupper.

A few other things I’ve learned from friends. The Lubber Grasshopper loves to eat up gardens and fields. They are mostly active during the night and will have little to no activity or movement during the day. Last but not least, according to a good friend of mine (Cynthia Clayton), if you pick one up it will make a weird noise and juice drops from its mouth.
