SEM image of a female mosquito (Culex pipiens) after a meal. The blood is stored in the abdomen. By the way, only the female mosquitos suck from blood. Males have pretty basic interests and stinging isn’t one of it. With their bushy antennas, they are able to hear exactly the frequency of a flying female (456hz)- but not much more.
