Caption

The scales found on the back of a mosquito (family Culicidae). These scales decrease fluid flow across the surface of the mosquito and allow it to fly with less energy. Several mosquito species are vectors for human diseases, including malaria and yellow fever. This is a scanning electron microscope image.
