When a swarm of grasshoppers attacked the Midwest in 1935, a local photographer named Frank D. “Pop” Conard had the vision to show the rest of the world what he was seeing with his own two eyes. He created a montage of postcards with giant insects and they sold like crazy. The grasshoppers were pictured on the bed of pickup trucks and next to trains to show their size. This image shows a man from the Midwest who’d just shot a monster-sized grasshopper in 1937. An Instagram user named Blake Nass confirmed the man in the picture was his grandfather, Joseph Nass, thus confirming his outrageous stories of this monstrous bugs.
