Living on Blood by Larry Lingard-Davis

This Mosquito had just finished sucking some blood,
so I zapped him…Literally.

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.

    nice shot, Larry but him? did you know that all biting mosquitoes are female? nasty buggers they are as you know (grin) … I grew up where they were so bad that you did not go outside from twilight to morning … would eat you alive! … thank my lucky stars that the little beasties really don’t like the dry conditions here in NE Wyoming … something good about drought conditions if you ask me (grin/smile) ….

  • I hate them…..Grrrrr.

    Nice and close Larry

  • I really don’t know how these photographers get so close to get images of insect eyes though…
    It’s so hard getting close to insects, as they always seem to fly off…Grrr.
