“Mosquitoes bite you as if they are in some kind of love with you”. M.F. Moonzajer

In the photo above two things catch your attention.

  1. The shining water rainwater droplet on the flower bud, which almost going to drop.
  2. The shining design of the antenna & body of the mosquito.

✔Shining water droplet

Photography of water droplets is an interesting topic.

It’s the refraction of the image through the water droplet that becomes more interesting.

The appearance of the subject resembles that of a fisheye lens view and similar to the image in lens ball photography except the image is upside down.

“True joy of nature is when every drop of water shines like a pearl”  Anamika Mishra

✔The shining antenna of the mosquito

Of course, you all know about the insect’s Antenna.

Antennae are used to feel, smell and often hear.

The antennae of male mosquito are bushy as in the photo above unlike the less hairy antennae of female.

You know pretty well that mosquitoes are not friendly insects.

Which is more dangerous-Male mosquito or Female mosquito?

My friend, female mosquitoes are dangerous.

Male mosquitoes don’t need blood for survival. The survive on flower nectar.

We know that human blood tastes ‘salty’ but for the Female mosquitoes, it’s a ‘sweet candy’!

Spider Web

“The greatest artist and web-designer ever is indeed a spider!”
Munia Khan


“The spider’s web: She finds an innocuous corner in which to spin her web. The longer the web takes, the more fabulous its construction. She has no need to chase. She sits quietly, her patience a consummate force; she waits for her prey to come to her on their own, and then she ensnares them, injects them with venom, rendering them unable to escape. Spiders – so needed and yet so misunderstood.” Donna Lynn Hope

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
