Nice variety Dave well done
Decent set. The first two are very good.

Thanks I was quite pleased with the mosquito - if only he had held his leg still I could have got a stack.
Nice set! I don't think that mosquito is going to have much luck drawing blood from that carton.
Thank you but it is a male so will not want to try blood.
Remember with most insects only the females cause problems for us.
There is some evidence that can be true for a hairless primate as well.
