Locusts

The locusts are invading!  
At this time of the year we usually have an invasion of mice... and I must say that since the fields are being burned off ready for planting,  we do have a bit of a mouse problem.  However,  this year, as the weather has turned cooler (only 20C today) and we have had the first autumn rain.  I'm not sure how much today, but it was the gentle soaking rain on still warm soil that the vegetables love.
Today I found several locusts inside. I suppose they are also looking for a safe haven in the rain...
... this one was on my kitchen window.
