|Este mosquito um pouco maior que os habituais Culicideos que aparecem sempre no verão devido ao calor e a umidade que apreciam muito, |
Com a tromba bem menor que os tradicionais, me impressionou pela indiferença da lente da camara para sacar as fotos..
o fio em que esta pousado é um "varal" de nilon, e pode-se ver o trançado.
This mosquito slightly larger than the usual culicids that always appear in the summer due to the heat and humidity that they really appreciate,
With the trunk much lower than traditional, impressed me by the indifference with the lens of the camera to draw the pictures ..
the wire on which it is resting a "clothesline" nylon, and one can see the twisted nylon.
The image was resized, a bit cropped and with a minor adjust in GIMP

Great macro of this mosquito in excellent sharpness and details. Taken from the best POV in beautiful natural colours. Nice contrasting blurred background.
All the best for the new year to you and your family,
One of my favorite insects! Well done ... excellent focus and POV. By the way, this specimen is not a mosquito (Family Culicidae), but a Robber Fly (Family Asilidae). They will bite you if you handle them incorrectly, but are not known to land on you an bite (as in mosquitos). They are predacious on all kinds of flying insects, many larger than themselves. They are usually quite timid unless you catch them while eating prey. Most images are with prey ... you did good to "sneak" up on this rather nervous fly. TFS
This site is opening my eyes to the insect world with super macro images and yours is no exception. You have captured tremendous detail. With your choice of POV
you have the Mosquito completely in focus. Your DOV is great as that back leg is just as sharp the front one, super image. I'm sorry though I am still going to smack
him if he lands on me next summer.
Thanks for sharing
