[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When watching Birds in Southern France I found these Green Frogs atracting Mosquitos? I have never seen this and would be happy if someone could identify the insect and tell me if they are real bloodsuckers.
Thanks for your help

Hello Tom,
a very nice captre with the mosquito on the frog. they are of course bloodsuckers and are mosquitoes only..

Hi Tom...The mosquito really adds something to this...I especially like how they are facing the same way.Best, Brat.

Tom, at first, I hadn't understood the title - now, it makes sense...

Another great image - and a great moment.

Excellent sharpness, pov and composition.

Hello Tom

That sure looks like a mosquito to me.I wonder if the frog will be itchy after.Very good focus and sharp detail.The low POV is very good.TFS


Hello Tom,
Not the usual piggy-back action ;)
The mosquito will suck the blood out of anything with breath it seems..
Well seen - Well done.
