Video: The birth of a mosquito

Nobody likes them and there are very good reasons not to like them, but mosquitoes are still pretty amazing creatures. At least from such an perspective as in the video:

Mosquitoes are estimated to transmit disease to more than 700 million people annually worldwide with millions of resulting deaths. At least 2 million people annually die of these diseases. Malaria alone is killing around 800.000 people per year. Very good reasons not to like mosquitoes!
