People sometimes have quite strange hobbies or occupations. What would you say if we told you about a man making pictures of squashed mosquitos, maggots, ticks and other crawling creatures?
These spectacular mosquito bite pictures were sent to us by our loyal visitors. Where else will you see a mosquito bite from that close?
This close-up picture shows the biting mouthparts of anopheline mosquito. Anophelines are easily separated from other mosquitoes by their long palpi (two parts with widening end), almost reaching the end of lower lip (labium).
This close-up picture shows female mosquito feeding on nectar. Female mosquitoes search for a blood source for their eggs and need energy, which is taken by feeding on nectar from flowers.
