NOT a Texas mosquito

I've heard everything is bigger in Texas so I'm assuming their mosquitoes are this size. That's the reason I stay away from there. Well, and also the heat. I don't know what this is called but I do see them occasionally on the side of my garage and I can snap away without them flying away.

Re: NOT a Texas mosquito

Mosquitos may not get that big in Texas but people from Texas will swear they do. I'm just joking I have nothing against Texas nor Texans. Thanks for the info Jim. I researched it and you are definitely right.

Thanks Sillar,

Have you viewed the spider shot that Jim posted in the photo sharing "Things" section? Now that is a shot from the master. If you haven't seen it you are missing a great shot.
