Mosquito Swarm

These are swarming male mosquitoes. They hover above the tundra like a big black cloud. The good news is they don't bite.

The bad news is that they go up your nose and down your throat and in your eyes. Yuck.

Are you sure that isn't a plague of locusts???

I can hardly believe how BIG they look -- more like birds. Sheesh. Does mosquito repellent work with these monsters?

We get bad swarms too! I am British but live in Lapland, Finland.. Mosquitoes are the bane of Summer!

My son wants to live in Alaska..somewhere that is even quieter than where we are! So I just clicked your survey for him.. he is 16 years old.
