Eggs en masse - Culex quinquefasciatus
Vero Beach, Indian River County, Florida, USA
November 28, 2005
Just some eggs from my colony. I am taking some "eye candy" shots for a presentation and thought these looked kind of cool.
The rafts stick to one another with via van der Waals forces, I believe. Makes for some pretty patterns.
Also note that sometimes females die in the process of ovipostion, especially in a dense colony situation.
