Dansmuggen - Chironomidae.

This picture is in large format, so you can see how many mosquitoes flying together. Please respect the copyrights so that I can post more of them if need into this high resolution. The high original posted format have 1920x1200 pixels so you can put him into a full screen and enjoy these beautiful insects in full flight. of course only 2 of them are sharp in focus but it's nice to see how they fly in groups. This type mosquitoes are smaller as my previous recordings but have the same look. They are really difficult to trigger. I've only 2 pictures just now of this small versions.
