Monstrous Mosquito!

Hubby had some rifle training to attend out at the Kennedy Space Center last week. He came home the first day telling me that the mosquitos out there were big enough to carry away a small child.
Now, we live in Florida, and mosquitos are a way of life for us, big, small, fast, slow, they are common and plentiful and come in all shapes and sizes. However, I was intrigued by his high tales of these huge monsters and when he offered to bring home a "sample" I just knew I had to share it with all of you! :)
I sent him to training armed with a quart size canning jar, he poked holes in the lid to ensure our captive arrived home safely. Here is our "guest" sharing space with a quarter to show his size. Now, remember, this guy has an empty belly, just imagine his size after munching on your blood for a few seconds - Yikes!

Have a beautiful and mosquito free day!


  1. And that's why they have the "professional" mosquito killers out at the Cape. Brad says they are always full too!

  2. THAT is scary! Thanks for dropping by my blog.
