Locust Swarm returns to Khamis Mushait – Record by Farah Imran Shams

The images of the locusts flying in the air are from the 27th of June in the city of Khamis Mushait.. They came back around 6 in the evening and did not land on the ground. They mostly stayed in the air for around half an hour again. The rest of the images are from the next day. On 28th June, the locusts came back in the morning, around 9 am. Their visit was even shorter this time, barely 15 minutes long. This time, they descended on the roads and roofs in great numbers. I managed to get a few shots of them before they all moved on to some other spot. Again Digger Wasps were associated with the locust swarm and again all the photographs have been taken by Farah Imran Shams who has kindly allowed me permission to put them on my website.
