  10. Those prisky mosquitoes do not like them. Here in the US the west nile virus is spreading fast and many people died already. Be careful with those mosquitoes. ^_^ Happy Monday!

  19. Now that is very brave..wonderful detail...makes me itchy...

  20. You are a brave soul ... I know you say they are harmless, but here they carry diseases because they arn't discriminate about who they suck their blood from. We have had several deaths caused by the West Nile Virus that is spread by a mosquito. That said, your shots are nothing short of amazing. Stay well ...

  24. Perfekt foto men jag hade nog inte låtit den sitta kvar så länge. Riktigt känner sticket.Ha de gott.

  25. You won't get me to do that! I may take pictures of venomous spiders; but, no way on the mosquitos! You are very brave! These are awesome captures! Never seen a mosquito up close like that.

    The reason why I won't do this is because we have a bad case of West Nile Virus going around here -- 26 people have died in Texas alone so far (41 total in the states) this year. :-(

  27. Amazing macros of this mosquito. In Texas, there is alot of trouble with West Nile Virus from Mosquitos, and quite a few people have died. Watch out and don't get bitten

Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I will return your visit (if I haven't visited you already), but please be patient. I might not be able to do so until the weekend. Take care!
