Caption

Female biting midge (Culicoides sonorensis). Biting midges are small flies with painful bites. The females suck blood from vertebrates, and are major pests in late summer. This species is also a vector of bluetongue disease, a condition which causes cyanosis in the tongues of ruminants. This midge is feeding on blood from an artificial membrane used in the mass rearing of insects. Magnification: x30 when printed 10 centimetres across.
