Definitely unique. I rated two stars, however, because the colors feel a bit off. I'd punch of the contrast a bit and make the color a bit less blue.

Thanks for the input, Brad.

Definitely a very rare site. I am questioning what the mosquito is on, as blue is not a common skin colour. The grainy nature of the image makes me think this is super enlarged.

Still, I gave three stars because it is definitely something I could see in a biology text.

Thanks, Daniel. The mosquito is on the knee of my blue jeans. I've seen hundreds of photos of mosquitoes on flesh - not "unique". Not the technically best in my portfolio but definitely my most unique shot of 2019. Thanks for the 3.

I don't like the zoomed in window on the left. It's unnecessary as the detail can be seen easily in the main picture and it distracts from the composition.

Thanks for the constructive criticism, Petr. I'm inclined to agree about the inset. Maybe I'll enter another without the inset.
