Movie 6

High-speed video and 3D model reconstruction from video tracking for the blood-fed mosquito of Fig. 5F-I. The movie consists of the two perpendicular side view videos (top right and bottom left), top view video (bottom right), and the 3D model reconstruction (top left). The mosquito model consists of a rigid body and two rigid wings. The videos were recorded at 13,500 frames per second, and play-back was slowed down 450 times.

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