Insects, bugs and creepy crawlies offer the macro photographer an infinite amount of color, texture, and physical construction to explore. Macro and close-up photography can be challenging tasks even under the best of circumstances. Taking photos of such small and intricate subjects requires a lot of patience and attention to detail.
Macro photography offers a new perspective on the insect world, where you can witness details that can’t usually be seen be the naked eye, and make even the most “other worldly” of insects seem a little cute, despite their reputation as pests .
Here are 15 well composed insect photos from some of the talented photographers at 500px.
