Romalea microptera, the Eastern lubber grasshopper;
Collier county, Florida (12 March 2023).
Spring Break 2023
A small cluster (or “cloud”) of fairly young Eastern lubber grasshoppers forage about upon a tree at Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. As they mature and age, these Lubber grasshoppers will become more yellow and red (and much, much larger).
