This came courtesy of some coverage in goldcoast.com.au website, when they ran a story on the incident.
A video I took in Surfers Paradise of a swarm of beetles. I tweeted the local newspaper about the phenomenon, but got a fairly cool reception. That evening I posted the clips on Youtube and then went over to a friends place for some drinks. By the time I returned home the next day, the Gold Coast Bulletin website, www.goldcoast.com.au had sent me a tweet requesting the url for the video, as apparently in the light of day it was a good story. They managed to find the video on Youtube without me and used it on their website in the story. It then became a bit of a minor hit. I found it very interesting watching it’s slow spread across the world using the Youtube insight feature for personally uploaded videos.
I took the video on my Nokia N95 mobile phone.
The video came in two parts and the second part can be found here
