The State Bird of Alaska
Before I came to the Arctic, everyone who was familiar with Arctic summers warned me about the mosquitoes. Back during our orientation in Fairbanks in late March, we even had the chance to model some bug shirts to prep ourselves for the onslaught.

Check out this video of the mosquitoes in action on Team Spider’s own, Kiki Contreras.
