Photographer's Note

This musquito was teasing me a while. When I managed to catch it I saw the white stripes on the legs. Its the "Aedes Aegypti" The popular name is tiger mosquito. This specie is the one who is the most spreading of the feared dengue virus. There are 4 known dengue virus. The first time you get it is not dangerous but the second time you get infected is very dangerous. I wonder how to shoot it coz my cam macro is min 17cm distance. I always have this magnifying glass in the near. I tried and it worked.
