'Mosquitoes breeding in a pool of brackish water on the south coast of East Timor. Adults, pupae and larvae can be seen in this image. Like many tropical regions in the world, East Timor has many serious issues with mosquito-borne diseases, including several forms of malaria, dengue fever and Japanese encephalitis.'
