Look up; there be bugs [Educational Video]
NPR put together a very entertaining cartoon explaining why you can find massive numbers of insects flying along on the wind currents 5,000-10,000 feet up in the air. I’m not talking about big monster flying bugs but rather butterflies, wasps, aphids and ladybugs.
Best fun fact in the video: If you wanted to add up all the bugs in a typical 0.6 square mile column of air you would need to count to at least 3 billion. That happens everyday in June, July and August. Wow.
And here all this time, I thought the sky only belonged to birds and Super Grover.
