Trouble never comes alone. After coronavirus infection, many countries face the invasion of locusts. The videos posted on social networks show tens of thousands of insects flying over buildings and landing on rooftops. The locusts are famous especially for the colossal damage they do to crops, especially some species, which devastate everything they pass.
However, as a subject for macro photography, the locust is quite … photogenic
Have you ever been affected by locust invasion?

Wow that’s an impressive capture!
Thank you, Ellie! You know I love macrophotography!
That is one fantastic closeup of that locust.
Thank you, Sandra. It was nice that he posed for me!🙂
Luckily, I haven’t experienced a grasshopper invasion yet. I know they can do a lot of damage.
They are very harmful. Average swarm of locusts can destroy crops that could feed 2,500 people for a year
We have these every few years and the noise is unbearable.
I did not have the opportunity to witness an invasion and I hope not. They’re pretty harmful.
The sound is all I experienced and that was enough.
It’s good that you only heard the sound. The locusts destroy absolutely everything in their way.
You can even see the little hairs on his legs. That is amazing. (I wonder why I called it a him!)
That’s why I love macro photography. It shows me details that I can’t see with the naked eye.
