    Dear @Vedavalli1994,

    What a wonderful series of posts. I am quiet surprised by such a “square” like junction geometries for the wing veins. The football appearance is because the light gets cut off outside the circle of the lens. So nothing is really circular in the sample.

    It’s also fascinating that these veins are what keeps the wing alive – yes the wing is actually alive.

    You might also enjoy reading an old post of blood flow in mosquito wings – imaged using a foldscope.

    Looking forward to reading more posts from you.
    Best wishes.
