Sure, Dan’l Boone done kilt him a bar one day, but did he ever get a skeeter in December? Son of a gun, but this lady-assassin just popped up by the bathroom sink just now, triggering my mosquito-killing instincts quite nicely. (Sixty degrees out today, and I did have my door open earlier.) It’s not one of those interloping Asian Tigers; no black and white stripes on the legs, but that’s about all I can tell you about this member of the family Culicidae. The shot’s from my wobbly south paw for obvious reasons.
