Mosquito Bite / Blood
Outstanding shot. It made me slap the screen to kill it! Killer macro shot!(Yes the pun was intended) Amazing detail, clarity, and DOF in this photo. Very unique post. Great job!
Wow! How many bites did you have to experiment with to get this shot :) Very good macro work here. Good idea - good execution. Thanks for sharing!

Stunning capture, I can't believe you had the composure to photograph this so well while your blood was being sucked, LOL!

this is an excellent makro-shot of a moment I always notice not until it's too late and the bad mosquito already had my blood.
How have you managed to make that shot, unbeleaveable and fantastic, thank you very much, very good quality

Wonderful (if gory) sequence ! Never had a chance to take this kind of picture, because my hand always went before I had time to think twice and shoot a picture!...

Outstanding sharp picture ! How do you manage to do all this macrowork with only one free hand, mosquito biting your other arm ? One clearly sees how its belly is growing. But your workshop, sorry to say, is sooo much shocking.

Good job Mike! Especially part 2...
Not a very nice insect and not a good one to be bitten by either. Nice sharp shot, well captured, thank you. And interesting notes too... TFS

The whole presentation including the notes are done with taste.

P.S. We don't have a terrible problem within Canada from this pest ... 'cause of our intense COLD, I suppose.
