Caption

Northern house mosquito. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the northern house mosquito (Culex pipiens). It has large compound eyes (pink) and feathery antennae (upper right) on its head. The mosquito uses its proboscis (lower right) to pierce the skin and suck the blood of an animal host. C. pipiens mainly feeds on birds, but it can also feed on humans. It is the main vector of West Nile virus.
