    Default Maintaining an armís length, social distancing of Insectdom

    ID: Non Biting midge

    Usually seen, atleast in my case, next to the mangrove areas, these non-biting midges seem to follow the new norm of social distancing, maintaining an armís length distance from each other. These midges seemed to be picking up the underside of the leaves to rest out, and for some reason these two had selected this leaf for resting, eventually though, the other midge moved out and flew off. Usually confused with the nasty mosquitos, these pale beauties are generally hated and mostly killed off while they venture into the homes surrounding the mangrove areas, even though the name literally suggests them to be non-biting ones, but less awareness lead to killing of these beauties

    Prajwal,
    Interesting image and info! Is it a large crop? Often while clicking this tiny creatures light becomes a challenge. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,

    It can be quite difficult for the eye to differentiate between them and mosquitos. They look so similar . I feel a bit less space at the bottom would be nice. Thanks for sharing the detailed info.
