Alien Winter Dust

First few seconds is all you see. Pretty interesting dust particle floating towards the lens. I’ve personally seen thousands of them in WYZE events. I felt this one was just slightly interesting.

If you look closely, you’ll realize it just an insect.

It does appear to be some sort of insect, but I guess one might argue that with snow on the ground, the odds of an insect flying around would be low…however I’m no expert on insects and their ability to navigate (or not) cold or freezing temperatures.

Of course. The insects in the below freezing winter are worse than the insects in the summer here in Chicago. Indeed they are. What type of insect do you believe it is? Maybe a flying one? Like the bug in following video?

I would agree but it is winter time here. There are no bugs out.

Yeah, it is strange. I googled “insects in freezing weather” and farmers almanac provides: "All insects have some ability to withstand cold weather . … When temperatures drop well below 0°F, though, many individual insects die. The colder the temperature becomes, the fewer survive. The problem is, the ground is warmer where they hunker down, allowing them to survive even some of the deepest freezes .

My initial thought was maybe it was some sort of seed that was dislodged from a secure place and caught the draft upwards…it is funny though because many times these objects appear to be moving with purpose other than at the whim of the wind or air current.
