North Carolina State Bird

State Bird-1-2

The mosquitoes are so big and plentiful in North Carolina,

especially on Hatteras Island where we stay in the summer,

that they ought to make the mosquito the state bird.

  1. Hey, it’s the same state bird of the summer here in Michigan 😀
    I love the picture Debbie. Cute 🙂

    • Yes, I’m sure it is, I’m thinking about making some for other states too. If I do one for Michigan, I’ll let you know. 🙂
      Thanks Scott! 🙂

  2. Love it!!! PMSL!!!

    Less a Mosquito and more of a dive bomber!!! LoL!!!

    Glad I don’t live near them – I HATE blood suckers!!! 🙂

    Love and squishy hugs!


    • Again?…go clean yourself up! 😉 🙂
      You don’t get any of affectionate insects?…lucky! 🙂 🙂
      Love and squishy hugs to you too! 🙂

      • Sure! 🙂

        We have mozzies which are small mosquitoes and midges that are even smaller.

        They are only a bother during breeding time because the females need the protein for their eggs.

        Males don’t bite! 🙂

        Love and hugs sweety!

    🙂 I’d be very happy if they became vegetarians.

  4. We better take a lot of OFF to the beach. This critter looks hungry for blood

    • That for sure, and I think we’ve already ran into a few hundred of them last year! 🙂

  5. Alaska was vying for this state bird I’m sure. Very cute. But as we have about 46 different types of mosquitoes in Florida, I’d keep them at arm’s length.

    Mosquitoes are such lovely little fellows!
    I really like the design. I think it’d also look good in a circular crest format, too.

  7. Oh, this made me smile, Deb! Very cute picture and this is one state bird I wouldn’t be fond of! 🙂 xoxo

    • Thank Geoff. It was super fun to draw and color!
      I’m going to watch a pay-per-view of Impact wrestling at 8:00pm tonight on the internet…free!
      Hugs xxx

  9. Very cool mosquito Deb. This one looks professionally drawn for sure! 🙂 xo

  10. Hiya Lovely xoxoxoxox 🙂 Happy Sunday
    i don’t think there is anything you cannot create – seriously
    always in awe – over here xxx
    lots of love xo C xx

    • Well if there is something you want to create, you have to just keep at it till you get what you want. 🙂
      Thank you, Pumpkin!
      Love and hugs! xxx

  11. Awesome cartoon Deb. You really need to do a webcomic, seriously….

  12. Actually it looks very similar to the wasp tattoo I have on my arm. I’d be running too if they were that big here.

  13. OMG, how funny 🙂 same in PA, that’s a great idea to do one for other states 🙂 You are so creative!!! hugs xx

    • I think what I’ll do it put one in the store with out the words so it can apply to where anyone lives that has them.
      Thanks Autumn! 🙂

    That is Great! Down here those little suckers are really vicious!

  15. Kąśliwe są komary,very niceday:-)

  16. Eeeek..don’t get me to be frightened of mosquitoes too!! Malaysian mosquitoes are thankfully a lot smaller though they do have the nasty habit of spreading dengue! Ugh..

    • It’s a bit of an exaggeration of the size. They are mostly plentiful and pesky leaving one with fierce itchy bites wherever they bite. And, once they bite they don’t die, then just keep biting.

    I have gone for my jog and was thinking of this t-shirt. I think I’ll get one, but the problem is getting it to Bogota. Hmmm. We’ll see.

    • It’s get to you if you ordered one, There is another one in the gift shop that you may like too. It’s doesn’t have words to it, and it’s my most recent posting here on my blog.
      The one you were thinking about I will be adding to the store without words so it will be good no matter where anyone lives. 🙂

  18. Like your cartoon Deb, Aussie mosquitoes are so big they were in swarm formation during the second world war and the radar picked them up as incoming aircraft, now that a big Aussie Mossy, hehe

  19. Hahaha… those birds must be related to the ones that used to love hanging-out where I grew up, too, Deb!

  20. I love the post Deb! I have been there many times and have a lot of family there! You are 100% right! Have a wonderful day!

    • Well, it an exaggeration of size to make if funny, but as you know, they are plentiful and pesky! 🙂
      Thanks Wendell!
      Have a great day! 🙂

  21. 🙂 Didn’t know that!
    I agree with everyone. Love the design.
    You’re so good at everything!

    Sorry, Deb, but Mississippi laid claim to this one a long time ago!!

    • This one is not recently claimed, just my drawing. I think we all claimed this one along the gulf and east coast! 🙂
