Bit by this Green Mosquito
Aug 11, 2012

I noticed a bite this evening as a welt on my right forearm that itched for about 20 minutes then stopped itching. I figured it was a mosquito bite. Then I say this pretty bright green thing flying around. I wasn't sure what it was but when I squashed it, only bright green blood came out (no red blood).

A web search revealed that this is a green mosquito, that they bite but don't necessarily feed.

I dug this out of the trash to show you, since this is a photography forum and all. It's late, and I didn't want to get my macro, so shot with Sigma 24-60mm on a57.

Anyone know anything about these things? I never saw one before.
