I promised another view of a Migratory Locust (Locusta migratoria). This time, however, the tables have been turned and it is looking down on me! I was un-pegging the last of the dry laundry from the line when I came face to face with this locust just above my head:

Its stare was hard and unblinking:

The locust moved off nonchalantly:

Then came back in a flash of fearsomeness:

I picked up my laundry basket and bid it farewell, leaving it to continue with its migration.
