Mosquitoes alert!

This is the size of mosquitoes nowadays. I'm surprised. It was one of the biggest that I've seen around here. Luckily, I got to the bugger before it got to me!

If I am not mistaken this is an anopheles mosquito judging from the white stripes on its abdomen. It is a carrier for malaria. Its size is not unusual as it is typical of this specie of mosquitoes. It is not as commonly found in modern housing estates as the smaller more dreaded species, the Aedes, the carrier of dengue fever virus.
