Flooding around the Missouri River has caused a bug boom this summer. "The tree tops, ditches and cornfields now 'smoke' with bugs at dusk," Mike Hollingshead wrote as a caption to his YouTube video.

"One night I found this crazy display of bugnadoes, vortex formations of bugs. The first night I saw them swarms of dragonflies were around, flying through them eating them. "

There are more photos of "bugnadoes" here from photographer and storm chaser Mike Hollingshead, for anyone looking for a gross new desktop picture.
