Well, even larger insects have "mosquitos" to combat with. These are among the smallest dipterans that I had seen, around 1-2mm. I usally notice them only while processing the images.

Another one on a beetle (Cantharidae).

Do these belong to Ceratopogonidae?

Ceratopogonidae is the name of the family.
They are more often seen sucking fluids from all kinds of animals, including insects!

Thx for the confirmation.

Fortunately these seem too small to be dangerous for me :-)

Ha-haa, I wouldn't count on that.
Ceratopogonidae are well known to attack humans as well, and their bite is painfull!
They can be a real nuisance, so you better watch out! Wink

And even if the bite is not exactly painful, they can occur in such huge numbers that they drive you utterly crazy (if you are not already, that is) because of the itching. Grin
