I've always been fascinated by bird swarms...they are quite beautiful to watch,they always seem so orchestrated and its one of those mysteries of nature, how a mass amount of them can fly so beautiful and flawless all together like they do.
There is a whole science based on creatures and "Swarm Theory". It can be beautiful but on the other hand, it can be just plain terrifying. I opened a shed door once when I was a kid and there were LITERALLY Millions of Earwigs All over EVERYTHING,falling from the door and upper planks and in every crack and crawling all over my bicycle,etc,etc,etc...It was one of the most scary moments of my childhood and to this day it makes me Shudder.
It is definitely nightmare material,especially with bugs,rats,bats...I apologize to the squeamish for this post, I start to itch and scratch when I look at these photos, myself. Maybe its a way of facing my fears-forcing myself to look at these crazy images...I dunno. It started with the beauty of bird swarming to pure scary times...sorry...haha,got a little carried away.
My lil' obsession started with this video...Its soooo cool,check it out!!! Oh, and be patient or put it ahead...it gets Nuts!!
p.s.- I think locusts would be one of the worst for me...what about you peoples???
