Karoo Locust Swarm Flypast 11 March 2022 – Two Pictures and video – please scroll down

Today our friends were in the Karoo National Park in South Africa where they witnessed the fly past of an enormous swarm of locusts. The fly past lasted about 2 hours, plus about another hour “for the stragglers to leave….” The swarm was so large that our friend DT wrote in her WhatsApp : “Yes it is amazing we can hardly see the mountains … it looks like a sand storm in the distance.” Thank you DT for the pictures and video (which I enlarged).

Scroll down please: There are two pictures and then the video followed by a quiz question about the size of locust swarms.

Thousands of dots in the sky
The swarm close up – a bit like the milky way!
