Supported in the back by a pair of middle and hind legs, the mosquito lightly rests its weight upon multi-jointed forelegs.  Feather-like antennae twitch back and forth from their perch around its palps, while its long proboscis exudes a needle-sharp quality that is clearly visible from any angle.  Compound eyes, black and seemingly lifeless, take over most of its head.  Shorter than its abdominal segments, its translucent, cross-veined wings are joined to its body at the hip.
