Drama around the Sweet Almond Bush

This guy is way too big to be a 'regular' mosquito and way too small and colorful to be a gal-nipper or whatever it is they are called. Look under him and you will see that even spidy is playing hidy from this guy. What do you think it is? Surely male mosquitos are not this much larger than females of the same species.
Who needs TV when there is this much drama around one little plant in the garden?

BTW, the heady sweet scent of the Sweet almond flowers only intensifed the garden life scenes.
