Blood Worm species Chironomini sp

Within the Chironomidae family there is a well known tribe of green species called Blood Worms (Chironomini). They are named after their larvae which are red and often sold for feeding fish. These mosquitoes are often seen in groups dancing in the air, sometimes even in the middle if the winter. Only in close-ups can one admire the beauty of these creatures. The tribus Chironomini is made up of at least 30 genera, some containing over 100 species. There is no way of identifying them from just a picture.
