Anopheles Mosquito

By johnke
From around 260 million years ago is a Genus of mosquito named by JW Meigen in 1818 of the 460 species only around 30 to 40 transmit the Parsite Plasmodium this is the gene that can cause Malaria in Humans. For myself i did contract malaria that re occurred three time I remember how sick and disorientate I was for around 14 days each time it occurred.
I think this image should give some hope to everyone who is self isolated and struggling with isolation like myself, The cure will come soon and things will get better so dont worry be strong and patient.........

Oh the Dragon fly is a dragon fly. I hope you have a little laugh..

Thank you to each and everyone of you that took the time to comment on my upload yesterday it is very much appreciated.
