Fatally Cold Feet

Friday morning I found a mosquito frozen to the roof of my car after an unexpected frost.  Since the light was poor and I did have that pesky JOB thing to go to, I collected him up for later photographing.  It turned out to be well worth the trouble of keeping him intact for a couple of days.

    Nice! A dead mosquito is the only good mosquito :)

  2. Looks like he’s bowing to the frost gods…nice shot!

  3. I can only imagine how hard it was to keep this tiny thing intact long enough to photography it. Good work!

    • Well, they’re pretty delicate. Ironically, I wrapped it in a bit of junkmail that I’d fetched from the mailbox the day before. Who says such mail spam is useless!!!?!? :)

  4. As a biologist, I must say that this is all kinds of awesome. Great work!

  5. Great detail. Really like it. I wish all mozzies would freeze ;)

  6. Scary thing. Nice shot.

  7. Great shots! I’ve seen bugs with fans on their faces like this before. Any idea what they’re for?
