A bit of hyperbole it the subject header? But come on... would you have looked if I just called it "mosquito pupa? Wink Laughing

Actually, consider this.....

-Annually, mosquito-borne diseases kill more people worldwide than any other single factor. Sad

-The World Health Organization estimates that 300-500 million cases of malaria occur each year, resulting in 1-3 million deaths. Sad

This pupa was photographed in a small "tank" made from a slide and cover slip glued together with a small spacer between. The "microscope" was a strange thing that I got on ebay last year, which I have set up horizontally so I can photograph small aquatic creatures in a more "natural" orientation. I used a 10X Nikon CF Plan objective on extension tubes attached directly to the Canon 10D body. This was mounted to the microscope instead of the normal nose-piece and head. The large image is a combination from a stack of 10 using HF. Lighting was an electronic flash unit positioned behind the slide.

An interesting bit of information there Charlie, I never would have guessed such a thing. Makes my little ameba take a back seat when it comes to taking out populations. Extreamly good images you have here. I may have to do a segment on my web page about these critters, although I am currently covering the lotic ecosystems, they may apply somewhere along the line. Thanks for the post Charlie, good presentation. Very Happy

Ken... I knew this subject header would draw you in.. Wink Wink
Don't worry, your little amoebae cause the world plenty of grief too. And these gals are just the vectors, it's the little microorganisms that do the dirty work.
