Can I use this in a lecture?
Hey Scott,
Do you mind if I use this in a lecture I'm doing on identifying mosquitoes in a medical entomology class? This picture is really spectacular, and I'd love to use it to show my students that mosquitoes are more than irritating little flies. I'd give you attribution of course.

 
Lecture
I would be happy to have you use if for educational purposes as I am a teacher myself.

 
Thanks
I appreciate it.

Male Psorophora sp.
What a spectacular pair of portraits of a male Psorophora sp. (appropriately pronounced Sore-o-FOR-a). Nice work!
