Description

Collected in the field for my Entomology class, but photographed in the lab. In a deliberate attempt to catch a mosquito, I walked into a patch of woods near a stream, stripped down to my underwear, and waited for a mosquito to bite me. This was quite successful, and in the abdomen picture, you can see some of my blood.
