A different kind of mosquito breed I stumbled upon this morning

in Fascinating Insectslast year

Initially, I thought these guys were matting until they both fell off the yellow rubber keg I saw them on.
These guys are called Aedes mosquitoes and they are of the family Culicidae.

The fall actually showed on of them was dead, I guess because animals and insects have different funny behaviors and actions, from crocodiles faking dead to flamingoes surviving in extremely salt waters.
I mean the list is endless.

After the fall, Its wings fell apart as the other dragged it.
What baffled me the most was when I found out that it was just another breed of mosquito.

All my life I have only known of male and female anopheles mosquitoes , the latter causes malaria.
