Really weird flying insects!





dharmin
Recently there was a large (a really really large) swarm of some bugs outside my house..
I have no idea what those insects were..looked like mosquitoes but a little bigger.

They seemed to be buzy flying in circles..(dunno..must be some crazy group mating ritual)

Anyway, once i realised they were not biting, i managed to gather enough courage to go closer and take a few photographs...here they are!









P.S. There swarm was actually much bigger than the photographs show!

Could it be grasshoppers?

Woa, this is crazy! Did you get the chance to catch one too see it? They look like grasshoppers, like Peterssidan said.

i couldn't manage to catch any cause my mom got scared after a while and told me to come in and close all the windows...

have no idea what those were, they seemed a little small to be grasshoppers..
but can grasshoppers fly? idk..
Vanilla
Yes, grasshoppers have wings. Very Happy



And sometimes they migrate and the swarming eats everything in its way. It's every crop's nightmare. Razz

Locusts?

Guess Ankhanu who is an expert in insects may be able to sort it out for us?
dharmin
they definately were not locusts (by looking at the wikipedia image of locusts)! something else!
