Caption: Macrophotograph of a female yellow fever mosquito, Aedes aegypti, showing blood from a human arm flowing up the slender stylets of the proboscis. The labium, the protective sheath of the proboscis, arches backward out of the way to allow the stylets to enter the skin. The female yellow fever mosquito is the carrier of an arbovirus, which causes the yellow fever disease, a once fatal & pervasive infection that is still dangerous in parts of tropical Africa and Central & South America. Magnification: x8 at 35mm size.
