A mosquito bite with a thermal imager turned out to be much more interesting than I originally thought! Not only does the mosquito heat up from my blood while it gets fatter, but in the process of eating it still manages to poop up to three times! In the video here are three different takes on my arm. The process is shown in an accelerated form, where it is clearly seen how the mosquito gets fat and warms up at the same time, and the episodes of how it poops while eating are shown separately. Equipment: UTi260B thermal imager with a macro lens, video was recorded using the XCapture app (the thermal imager itself cannot record video). Video from 2022.08.19.
