Eastern Lubber Grasshopper – Romalea guttata

While out at Oilwell Grade the other day I found a cluster of Eastern Lubbers in the nymph stage of their life.  At this phase of their life, they are very small and predominantly black with a yellow or orange stripe.

Once mature though they are one of the larger and more colorful of our grasshoppers.

Retired, living in SW Florida and spending my time at nature photography in my local area. I volunteer with a couple of local organizations to help my adopted home town. Travelling is now by airplane and car instead of a sailboat but happy anyway.
