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.

I’m really enjoying these large-scale installations of animals and insects by Canadian visual artist Kristi Malakoff. Also check out her work with currency and flowers. And if you liked this also see the work of Eiji Watanabe. (via pulmonaire)

Surreal Macro Photographs of Insects

February 3, 2012

Christopher Jobson

Malaysian photographer Lee Peiling lives and works in Tanzania where she picked up a camera for the first time just three years ago. Among her quickly growing body of work are these macro photographs of insects that look almost like paintings due to her use of a focus technique known as bokeh. If you like these, definitely check out more of her Small World series.
