Olympus E-P3 + Tamron SP 90/2.8 1:1 Adaptall-2
I definitely agree, but this is a really nice shot!
Great, thanks - you just made me punch my laptop screen on instinct...
Great shot, only thing missing is the proboscis impaled in the skin eagerly sucking up the fresh warm blood...........sorry, lost the plot there for a moment.
Nice image of a nasty insect!
Oh goodness. Last time I was assisting on an Architectural shoot with John Gollings, all I had to show for it was 112 mosquito bites (the building had a pool...). This brings back nightmares.
Brilliant shot btw. I would not have been able to get so close before the phobia hit!
a friend of mine is always making fun of how spazzy i get slapping myself on the legs and being "paranoid" about mosquitos...
we were in the car, and a mosquito was buzzing inside the windshield trying to get out
i was having a fit trying to get him out
"why are you worried, hes not after you"
"he will be!"
next morning... 6 bites around my ankles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
we also stopped for gas twice during a long road trip thru the southern states... mosquitos were bouncing off my window trying to get me... he was amazed... they have eliot-dar and can track me from 500 yards or something!
i woulda have preferred the photo if it were a macro of a squished mosquito with me standing triumphantly over it
When it detected my heat (if they can do such a thing), I tried to kill it but sadly it got away (I was shooting it on the garage wall at 4 in the morning as it sat dormant). But for the rest of the evening inside the house I kept feeling like there was one on me.
I thought a mosquito would look much more repulsive under a macro lens... Anyways nice shot!
That's a mighty nice shot.
thats a real cool picture. but i really hate mosquitos.
can i know what type of breed of mosquito is this in the pic
I wouldn't know, but the location is Grand Rapids, Michigan. So that might help in some research.
One word though, deet.
Nice. Darned flying syringe.
Darned flying dirty syringes lol, they can spread something just as bad as a dirty syringe .
When I was in Vietnam I awoke one night to see two mosquitos lifting a sleeping G.I., one mosquito at the the head, the other at the soldier's feet. The mosquito at the head whispered "Should we fly him outside to drain him?" and the one at the feet replied "No. If we do the BIG mosquitoes will take him away from us!"
I had to call in an airstrike from a squadron of B-52's to get the mosquitoes to drop the guy.
True story. Give or take a lie or two.
Nice shot of the mosquito, btw; one I'll never get because I'll never be in my garage at 4 a.m. :smile:.
I'm an odd duck like that. If it didn't cause suspicion with the police I'd probably be out in the general public shooting at 4AM.
