Caption

Mosquito (family Culicidae). The mosquito's head is at right, with its proboscis pointing downwards from its head. It is resting on four of its six legs, with the rear pair raised in the air. The Anopheles mosquito (which transmits malaria) takes this posture when feeding or at rest. The female mosquito uses her proboscis to pierce the skin of a mammal (such as a human) and feed on its blood. Mosquitoes also transmit other human diseases such as yellow fever. Photographed in Thailand.
