So what species do you think orangutans and chimpanzees are aliens?
Orangutans and chimpanzees ARE MONKEYS !!!!

Mosquitoes lay their eggs in water. The mosquito probably just mistook your mirror for a pool of water.

An interesting encounter to be sure but IMO the skeeter was probably engaging in normal behavior and happened to be in front of the mirror. I've watched many a mosquito and they wave their front legs when resting sometimes.
