Over the past few months photographer David Chambon has been working on a phenomenal series of photos featuring insects covered in tiny water droplets. These are a few of my favorites but you can see dozens more over on 500px and Flickr. If you liked these also check out the dew-soaked macro photography of Sharon Johnston and Ondrej Pakan. (via faith is torment)
Ontario-based ceramicist Steve Irvine caught this wonderful long exposure shot of fluttering moths swirling around a floodlight at night. Via National Geographic:
Fluttering wings leave lacy trails as moths beat their way to a floodlight on a rural Ontario lawn. The midsummer night’s exposure, held for 20 seconds, captured some of the hundreds of insects engaged in a nocturnal swarm.
Photographer Shikhei Goh lives and works on a small industrialized island called Batam Island, that’s a 45 minute boat ride south of Singapore. Goh calls himself a “macro addict” and indeed his portfolio is loaded with incredible photographs of the local flora and fauna of Batam from turtles, lizards, birds and especially insects. My favorite images are his intimate shots of insect eyes that appear metallic and almost robotic. See much more over on 500px.
Just a phenomenal capture by Michigan photographer Brooke Pennington. I love how brave the little mantis looks in the face of the pending kitty smack down. There’s a lesson to be learned here, surely. See it larger.
