That's me :). I needed to show how big a deal the mozzies were, that was the most effective way I could do it in a photo.The things a photographer will go through for the right image! You can read the extensive story of the expedition here, or a shorter form in an imgur album.
I fell in the river. When I took one shoe off to squeegee my sock the mozzies descended - then I realized it was a good photo so I took the other shoe off, waited for 40 hellish seconds & took this pic.
