[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Le taon, insecte diptère de la famille des tabanidés, est une grosse mouche. La femelle, trapue, longue de 2 cm, est armée d'une trompe courte et forte munie de stylets au moyen desquels elle pique et perce la peau des mammifères pour en sucer le sang. Le mâle, plus petit, a une trompe réduite et ne peut piquer. Le taon inocule aux hommes et aux animaux des parasites qui vivent dans le sang. Ceux d'Afrique transmettent à l'homme un ver parasite, le loa-loa qui se déplace dans le tissu cellulaire sous-cutané. En Europe, les taons contaminent essentiellement les boeufs et les moutons pour lesquels ils constituent un véritable danger.

Hello Didier,

great point of view and fine detail; splendid reflections and shades of colour. It seems an image seen through a microscope! Very well done!
