Hi sunnyjosef! These are beautiful macros of a species that most of us don't really like too much.

Do you happen to know the common and scientific name for this species? There are many species of mosquito all around the world. Would you please change the name to "Mosquito" or Unknown (if you don't know the species or genus). This will help other users on the site when they are doing searches for identification.

It would be great if you could include more information on this mosquito like habitat, where it is found, and such.
Thank you for your understanding.
