Friday Morning Nature Blogging

This is an Orange Eastern Lubber Grasshopper.

My girlfriend Amber is a photo biologist, She took this picture in Florida while trying to determine the food supply for some migratory birds in the swamp. She currently resides in The Virgin Islands continuing her schooling.

We hope to see her or her work on National Geographic soon; then I will have yet another geek celebrity name to drop. Heh.

In case you are wondering, the grasshopper IS as big as he looks. Even their babies are huge.

Happy Friday all!
