Caption

Mosquito larva head. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the head of a mosquito larva (Aedes albopictus). The collection of hairs are feeding structures used to filter water. The hairs beat through the water filtering out algae, pollen, bacteria and other micro-organisms that the larva feeds on. The mosquito larva hatches from a floating egg and hangs below the surface of the water. It breathes air through a siphon structure attached to its rear (not seen).
