what you can't see and hear is the Mosquitos.. 100's of thousands of them on you trying to suck every last drop of blood from your body. The noise of it all along with the
claustrophobia of being covered head to toe, shooting through screen can be a challenge. but as you can see, very much worth it. The noise will drive most people out of the bush.

The mosquitos would be a deal breaker for me. You are extremely dedicated to your photography to endure that.

I don't know if you ever heard of the black fly but they out number the mosquitos 10 to 1 and will indeed carry you away.

I do clone some out but you can see them flying around in the shot. This was a particularly bad year. It was insane.

We do have big biting flies in Texas that can be particularly bad around livestock. Plus we have lots of mosquitoes in the spring and summer so I can empathize.

I want to adopt those baby foxes!

Hate those "buggers"! When I was young, they found me on a canoe trip. There were several hundred of them dead on the floor by the time we were able to take out.

I remember seeing a wildlife film years ago, taken in Alaska, where the mozzies were so numerous, the ducks were just running through the cloud with their bills open. I'd hate to have been that photographer. Do you not use a mosquito repellant, Jeff? I always use tropical strength deet, even in the UK. My main problem is with ticks, of which I am sure you also have an abundance, with all the deer shots you have posted.

I prefer to use a bug coat made of netting that zips right over your head and a really cool thing called a Thermacell bug repellent. It burns a gas that heats a pad that has a bug repellent in it. It works like nothing Ive seen. It makes a cloud around you that repels bugs very well. of course in a stiff wind nothing works well but I'm never without one now. I tape it to my tripod if Im using one or just throw it on the ground or in a back pocket sort of, it does get hot.
