Movie 4

High-speed video of the take-off of a blood-fed mosquito filmed from the side. The video was recorded at 13,500 frames per second, and play-back was slowed down 450 times. The video corresponds to the photo-montage of Fig. 2D.

Escaping blood-fed malaria mosquitoes minimize tactile detection without compromising on take-off speed
