Plague of huge and destructive locusts descends on Victoria, Canada

Grasshopper by GPS artist Stephen Lund in Victoria, BC, Canada GPS Garmin Strava art cyclist cycling creativity animals insects grasshopper locust

Looking like something out of the Book of Exodus, this giant grasshopper was doodled by Stephen Lund using a bicycle and a GPS computer

Okay – ‘plague’ is a slight exaggeration. It’s just one huge locust, actually. And truth be told, it’s just lazing about destroying nothing at all.

But “Solitary grasshopper just sits there in Victoria, Canada” isn’t much of an attention-grabber, is it?

I guess Exodus 10:14 – “There had never been so many locusts, nor would there be so many again” – still holds the record for Most Locusts in a Single Plague.

All told, this insectile work of GPS art required 67 kilometres of cycling… 41 with my Garmin ON and another 26 dashing here and there to connect the dots where the roads didn’t cooperate.

I’ve rotate the image 90º CCW for ease of viewing.

See it on Strava

    You got me being a Canadian from Victoria, then the locust and grasshoppers especially the Exodus. Not to worry, both are edibles.
