insects in flight
2

After seeing so many things in flight on this forum, it is hard to resist.

It took a few tries but it was fun. The flowers are Barklya syringifolia.

Very large harmless mosquito

I was on my way inside when I saw this mosquito flying around near the back door. It was very hard to track with the camera.

I think this is the first time I have seen a female of this species.

The male has very plumose antenna. This one does not.

Toxorhynchites speciosus  Family:  Culicidae
