A "tornado" swarm of midges has been caught on camera hovering in Kinross.

Ross Cunningham came across the spectacle while walking near Loch Leven on Wednesday evening.

An expert from NatureScot explained that the midge "tornado" is called lekking, a type of display to attract a mate.

Being that I seem to be a midgey delicacy and this is less than 100 miles away from me I think I'll go hide under the bed till November.
