A White-footed Woods Mosquito. One of the biggest killers around the globe is the mosquito. They spread diseases which can be lethal or debilitating. When spending time outdoors protect yourself from these pest with long clothing or spray. This was one of many which made a meal of me as I made an impromptu trip down a boardwalk near sunset. I was not prepared for the swarms to set upon me so quickly. I made my exit just as quick as I arrived. #mosquito #mosquitobites #macrophotography #macromosquito #macro #macroinsect #ncnature #ncwildlife #biting #insects #pest #woods
