Jaak Põder - Mosquito jump


This year has been pretty insane regarding mosquitoes in Estonia — there are very many around and the best consumer anti-mosquito spray keeps them away for half an hour or so. It makes it almost impossible to take close-ups without any mosquito on the picture — then again, if you are ready to sacrifice yourself and tolerate the itching etc for couple of days, it’s a very good time to get your mosquito shots now.

    It is very difficult to get action into macro photography but you have done it here! Great stuff! I also like the transition from light to dark within the picture.
