Caption: Swarm of locusts. Coloured historical artwork of a farmer attempting to ward a large swarm of locusts away from his crops. Locusts swarm when they undertake mass migrations, where several billion insects may be present in one swarm. Any vegetation, including agricultural food supplies, in the swarm's path is often completely destroyed within minutes. Artwork published in The Atmosphere, by Camille Flammarion (1873).
