    Not quite... "It turns out that this supposed funnel, captured from Leziria Grande at Vila Franca de Xira in Portugal, wasn`t really a cloud nor was it actually funnel-shaped. It wasn`t even dangerous. However, it could be described as being voracious. It`s composed solely of insects. It`s not known for sure what kind of bugs makeup this swarm, but they may be red locusts. The swarm extended perhaps 1,000 ft (305 m). It was nearly a quarter of a mile (402 m) away from my position -- I took it with a 200 mm lens. Perspective makes the leading edge of the swarm appear smaller and thus tapered. Photo taken at 6:25 p.m. March 9, 2014."

    To humans, mosquitoes are the most deadly animals known. Mosquitonado would be a very scary movie.

    @faaaag: You should credit the author/photographer that made that quote.

    Thanks @faaaaq! I am 100% sure that mosquitoes NEVER fly that high! In any circumstances. They have no reason to!

    It`s some other kind of bug, but massive mosquito swarms are common. They just don`t look like that...
