The Season's First Mosquitoes

I snapped this picture a week ago. It’s the first mosquito I swatted this year.

They seemed larger than usual – and I hadn’t been bit by them yet. I was trying to convince myself that they were some sort of damselfly or something like that. I took the picture anyway.

Last night was sauna night. As I spent a bit of extra time outside (now that the evening temperatures have climbed into the teens), these things were buzzing around me to the tune of two or three at a time. Suddenly – zap! One bit me right on my bottom.

Sigh, and so it begins..
