I am in full agreement with you Carol ! The only good mosquito is a dead mosquito Smile This one did make for a few excellent photos before his sad departure though - so they do have some value in the end Smile

I hate mosquitoes , they are abundant in India for centuries & the cause for millions of deaths. through Malaria, Dengu & what not.

These swines feast on me when I am abroad. Glad there is one less of the species. Good captures.
The current temperature outside my house just now is 2 degrees, and that will fall to -2 by this evening. Moira

Think I'd have disposed of this straight away, it wouldn't have had to the chance to pose! Never been bitten by one, even in the exotic places I've been to. A fine set of images though, Carol, and my congratulations to you for photographing it first! Wink
