    Default The hidden tiger…

    ID: Asian Tiger Mosquito(Aedes Albopictus)

    A frame of one of the most potent killer, not a literal, but due to its potency/capability to transmit various virus and pathogens like Dengue, Chikangunya and in the latest ones, Zika virus too. These tiny, yet deadly, insects seem to flourish uncontrollably in the monsoon, especially in areas where water accumulates, and due to the dark complexion, are almost invisible to the eye, unless one gets bitten by them, leaving back, in case of lucky, just a nasty, itchy rash. The white stripes or spots almost resembles more like a zebra rather than a tiger, which it is commonly known, probably since these are not as harmless as the zebras and more like the predator, causing lethal harm to the unexpected humans, around it.

    Certainly looks quite deadly. What is the feather like thing near its eyes? Thanks for sharing the detailed information.

    P.S - Some dust spots can be seen in the top and bottom part.

    The feather like thing is its antenae
    Yeah, there is some dust on my sensor, as well as in the inner elements of my aged macro lens, awaiting proper opening up of services in Mumbai to get the kit cleaned properly, its been close to 2-2.5yrs since I last got it serviced. Dont want to risk cleaning it by myself, as I faced some issues with my earlier kit

    Interesting subject. I would not venture close to them with my camera. Where did you click it? In a garden? Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi
    PS: Better to get the kit serviced as the brush can at times touch the sides and get unwanted stuff onto the sensor.
