[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Actually took this photo for another site but could not wait to share it here. Let me know what you guys think about this very tiny subject.

This is a common mosquito that happened to land on my desk while I had my equipment out. Anyone who has tried to capture a fly or mosquito on macro will tell you of my suprise to have made this capture (I guess he was tired from drinking my blood). Oh yea this is the actual full 35mm frame no cropping done to this photo. One more thing the non reduced for web version is so clear that you can see all the details in his eyes.
