Adelaide Locust Plague

Adelaidians have been outnumbered this weekend by Locusts in plague proportions!

Following on from our Locust Hunting - What to do on the weekend idea, here are what people have been through!

 MissBunnyStrut just polished off her cocktails in the City when she was rudely interrupted!
(can you spot it?)

MissBunnyStrut shows us the locusts in the Garden, all freaky and blue

 Holy Crap! Melissa in the Yorke Peninsula emailed this photo in. Obviously it was a fight to the death between a Scorpion and a Cricket and she has caught the aftermath!

derekandkong taken this shot. Norwood Oval 12th of March 2011. Ain't it pretty?

Hang on a sec, derekandkong has got a bit closer. Can't quite tell from this far, are they...??

Omigod, they are, LOCUSTS!

Thanks for the pictures folks.  Creepy huh? :-)
