Caption

Female mosquito (family Culicidae) head, light micrograph. The mosquito's head is dominated by its large compound eyes (black spheres). Sprouting from the head are long, plumose (feather-like) antennae, which are sensory organs covered in fine hairs. The long thin proboscis protruding from the head is used for feeding. Only female mosquitoes feed on blood. Magnification: x40 when printed at 10 centimetres wide.
