As children play hide-and-seek on a hot summer night, a mosquito, Culex, hides and seeks as well. She must find food--blood--to nourish the eggs in her body. Black-and-white photos relate the children's hide-and-seek story line, while astonishing colorized photographs taken with an electron microscope give close-up views of Culex and her world.
