Male mosquito. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of an unidentified male mosquito (family Culicidae). The male's antennae (one seen, upper centre to bottom left) are covered in delicate hairs that are sensitive to the flight tones of the female, enabling him to locate a mate. One of the male's compound eyes (pink) is also seen. Magnification: x70 at 6x7cm size.
