  • Wooly aphids? Or aliens?

    Anyone seen anything like these: http://vlsi1.engr.utk.edu/~turnmire/aphids/
    I found this link in another forum, and thought I'd share...
    The photos are cool, but you've got to d/l the video to see how these things move!

    They must be fans of heavy metal.

        Couldn't be... Some of the bugs were going "up" at the same time an adjacent bug was going "down". No, it definitely wasn't the wind or any type of fan...

        Watch it again.

          I've looked at the movies over and over and over again...

          Looks like a bunch of things attached to a branch wavering in the wind. I've honestly never been so dulled by a video. This is NOT the movement of the "bugs" (they are attached to the branch and being moved by some sort of forced air (wind or other...).

          BTW- I've seen wind circle before and blow leaves on trees in multiple directions at once...


          :icon23: I'm heading into my skeptic cave while the "wooly aphids" take over our planet...

          If they are aliens..this guy could've saved the world with a can of gasoline and a match... :D

                Ditto on the panties...

                I've seen these things on a nature show already. The video's not a hoax... But I just thought others would find it interesting...

                'Course, they could still be brain-sucking aliens from outer space...

                  Hey! I just found those mountain biking in VA!

                  I have two in a lil bug cup hoping to get pics.
                  I saw them move from the corner of my eye. SO KILLER!

                  TY for sharing


                  Guys these bugs are for real. You think it is like bird feathers stuck on a limb blowing in the wind until you get up close. They have 6 legs...meaning it is a real bug, and lil Feather on their butts lol...

                  This guy is not joshing ya!

                    I see these little fuzzy jerks on my ornamentals and a few of my annuals in the summer. When you poke them, they jump an unnatural looking distance. They really like my morning glories- if I don't keep an eye out for them, they will destroy the whole vine.

                    DOWN WITH THE WOOLY APHIDS!
