    macro photography of a feeding mosquito

    Not for the squeamish: the photo below is of a feeding mosquito: one of a series of pictures I posted on my blog last night of this mosquito slowly filled its gut with my blood!

    Cheers,

    The one and only insect I kill on sight !

    By the way, a fun fact: rubbing banana peel on mosquito bite cures the itch.

    I am so allergic to mosquito bites, I get chicken egg sized welts that last for weeks. The red mark lasts for months. If I swat a skeeter when it's actively feeding on me, I really blow up.

    Gosh, I lOVE BT dunks and Aldrovanda!
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
