Mosquito

Dumb-ass* Bugs That Come to My Porch Light #8: A flippin' mosquito!

 

You can tell it's a male by the plumose antennae.

 

* they are dumb-ass because a couple of smart-ass geckos hang out by the porch light and eat them. I have no photos of the geckos because they run off as soon as I appear... I need to find a way to trick them into getting their pictures taken.

    Once you've been nipped,
    You nick until you're crazy.
    Keep swatter handy!

    At least being a male, you know it's not going to bite you :) Great capture!
