Naan Kosu!!! (I am Mosquito)

(A must watch in Black!!)

 

For people who are wondering about the tamil title, it is in reference to a recent tamil movie called 'Naan E' (Translation: I am a Fly)

 

This mosquito was shot long long ago at CBE. I am not sure about what species this guy/gal belongs to but he usually comes and sits on leaves of a particular plant (Under the sun). The moment you go near for a click, he vanishes away only to return within 10 secs to the adjacent leaf. Watching these guys under the Raynox is an experience in itself. The Raynox beautifully enlarges their features and their compound eyes are a treat to watch. There will also be times when they shake one of their legs as though to shoo me away......
