Mosquito Biting A Human
Photograph - Photograph
Close-up of a female mosquito (Aedes sp.) biting a human. Female mosquitoes have a long proboscis adapted for piercing skin in order to feed on blood which is necessary to the female's reproductive cycle. The males of the species do not feed on blood and therefore do not transmit dangerous viruses. This mosquito was photographed on Grand Manan Island off the coast of New Brunswick, Canada.
