Mosquito larva by EdwinBont Mosquito larva by EdwinBont
Larva of a mosquito (5:1)
300D MP-E 65mm

It looks like a monster of the deep sea, but lives in my pond.

Never seen one up close. I only just realized they always have proboscis whatever stage they are in.

Really cool, it looks like glass. Nice photo!

Of course it does. The infinitesimal and the gigantic are alike. As above so below.

Oh my GOODNESS. Mosquito larvae... So that would mean that that's a wriggler, right? Anyway, this shot is just...amazing. To think, a picture of a wriggler could be so interesting and curious!

I lurve it!

5:1 is amazing I wished there were something similar like the MP-E 65 for Nikon.

Whoa....I'm going to hunt you down and steal your macro lens. Then I'm going to steal an SLR camera, because I don't have one.

Lol, well one day I'll move beyond the puny built-in macro on my digital camera...I need to find a job first. I hear a good digital SLR is far from cheap.

Nice shot, but I have to say that that is not a mosquito larva. In fact it is a Phantom Midge larva, family Chaoboridae, and genus Chaoborus.

It aggitates me that you have not updated the description for this photo. It is one thing to miss identify an organism and it is another to keep that up when a photo is been featured.
