Thank you,- even thought of enlarging his little head, to just show his face,which would be an
even better portrait,because I find
him so attractive!!!

They can be annoying if precautions are'nt taken.They are
like some strange looking alien
beings,but I find them more interesting than deadly looking.
As a child I loved looking at insects under a magnifying glass
and that is why I enjoy the magic
of macro photography,it is amazing.

I'm with you on this one Derek butterflies are definately prettier
and less theatening than Mosquitoes
Glad you liked Her Magesty,-I don't
believe they migrate to England.
Have a nice weekend and thanks for

I'm sure this is the George Cluny of the insect world and I bet Sigourney Weaver has the hots for him.x

psychelyn said...

wow that shot is perfect! great timing and he looks so sharp.

Ian
He's a weirdly attractive insect,
and I'm quite sure that many female
mossies find him very seductive.:)
In the insect world he could well
be a star! Thank you for making me
smile:)XXX
