Huge mosquito

While I was having a rootbeer float with some friends at A&W in PJ the other night, I saw a huge mosquito that had landed on my mug. Check out the size of the bugger! Click on the picture below the larger size.

Unlike the normal small mosquitos, this guy was really brave. I could get close enough to take a picture of it. I think it was feeding of the sugar on the mug. Might have been a male mosquito, I'm no expert so I can't tell.

Right after I took the picture, I smacked it.

Mosquitos, roaches and leeches are the only creatures I don't feel guilty about when I kill it. This particular fellow I think is a possible Aedes carrier so I had to kill it before it bit someone.
