The camera is focusing on the white cotton in most of these pictures, so the worker is out of focus and underexposed (the images are too dark).
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
