I am still recovering from viral encephalitis, contracted 2yrs ago from a mosquito bite.

Luckily they don't really transmit anything much here in NZ
I think first shot was around 2-3:1, last shot taken 5:1

Were you the victim that gave it blood? Neat action shots, but like many others have already said, I wouldn't let one bite me like that (at least here in the states).

people travel internationally, the Tiger Mosquito and the Snake Fish, both native to Asia are now world wide and the Tiger Mosquito harbours some nasty pathogens Plus they are diurnal. I do not permit any bloodsucking insects to impale me
