Tourists on a beach run through a swarm of pink locusts near Corralejo, on the Spanish Canary Island of Fuerteventura, in November 2004. Authorities in the Canaries issued alerts as swarms of locusts arrived from western Africa, with environmental experts estimating that some 100 million of the insects reached the Canaries.
