In the late 1950s and early 1960s Alain Delon (1935) was the James Dean of French cinema. The 'male Brigitte Bardot' soon proved to be a magnificent actor in masterpieces by Luchino Visconti and Michelangelo Antonioni.
A male mosquito and his feathered headpiece (his antennal flagellum) on the garden grapevine. Females have less extravagant antennae but are the ones that crave your blood. The fellas just like nectar. #macro #macrophotography #bugs #bug #insect #insects #insectagram #insectsofinstagram #mosquito #nature #naturephotography #torquay #janjuc by tinytorquay http://ift.tt/1X8VXis
Culex (Mosquito) Antennae The male mosquito has large bushy antennae, which he uses to listen for the buzz of a potential mate. He responds only to the humming frequency given by a female of the same species and will fly in the direction of the sound to mate with her. Male mosquitoes do not bite, but feed on plant juices and flower nectar. Only female mosquitoes bite animals and require a blood meal.
