Gnat Cloud in Mid Summer: Nature's Natural Bokeh

Who would have thought how artistically beautiful, pests like gnats can be. But, when captured in the right light, they transform into something so magical. This of this big gnat cloud was captured in mid-June on a sweltering hot day in Pennsylvania during golden hour. It's one of my favorite photos I've ever taken simply because of the fact that something so pesky like gnats can look truly magical - something I've never thought of before.
