‪Bright and still. Two dozen gnats form a cloud of Brownian motion, rising and falling above a fixed point—some stone or blade of grass.‬

  1. The last part is very important. It can be either a stone or a blade of grass. As of now the object is still covered by gnats, who are surrounding it in Brownian motion. Interesting.


    1. Typical behavior — lekking, I believe. They can hover for hours, but this one broke up after 20 minutes.
