Deadly Sinner

Culex pipiens aka Common Mosquito

I've thought Of doing something different this week. It came to my idea how to represent the deadly sins in a photographic, artistic (?) way, with my vision, world vision, and non-christianity vision.
I'm catholic, but I find some of these ‘'deadly sins’' not so ‘'deadly’' if they are in everyone of us. During the series, (which means whole week), I'd like to know your interpretation of each and what do you think about my test.
Something to change, I do not want to be posting bugs all the time lol :)

Decided to put the mosquito as the starting. why? Because he is the 7 Deadly sins in one.
just look at it:

''The currently recognized version of the list is usually given as wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.''

''Wrath' [photoblog.com]': Can you imagine the wrath of them?
''sloth [photoblog.com]'': they usually don't attack at the day in your rooms. why? sloooth!
''pride [photoblog.com]'': They think they are the best blood suckers!
''Greed [photoblog.com]'': A lot!
''lust' [photoblog.com]': As mating, they are truly lusty
''Envy' [photoblog.com]': as larvaes they are so jealous of each one that sometimes they kill others.
''gluttony' [photoblog.com]': they are never totally full of blood.

full of blood

Not guilty! I think a sin is something wrong that is done intentionally, and intention is a characteristic of the rational being.
Poor mosquito who just wants to survive!! :)))

But they are so generous aren't they? don't they always give a little of their last meal to the one they are currently eating??? Hardly their fault they spread disease amongst their prey. How sinful is that?? -OK, I am being sarcastic!

So sorry Ricky, great shots and theme, but at the moment I have to deal with my personal sin of overload with work. So I have to refuse your invitation

Great start! I hate these little sinners! He's not my brother so I don't have to love him! This should be interesting. You are always thinking, aren't you?

I think they make good food for birds and other insects? I think I read that mosquitoes (through carrying disease) kill more people in the world every year than anything else. No wonder you chose them to represent deadly sins! Fantastic shots, Ricky!!
