I LOVE macrophotography, for all the vivid detail of a subject it can provide, for the contrast with the blurry background, and because I’m becoming more and more farsighted as I get older. (Check out the macro work of a dear friend of Fish & Bicycles: Helen’s Photomania Blog)
On one hand, the compositions, details, colors, and dew drops are absolutely stunning.
On the other hand, I can’t look at these images without having the terrifying notion that these creatures could one day mutate to giant proportions and kill me.
And so I offer up this selection of Pakan’s work, so that I might not be so alone with my terror. (Be sure to click the images to make these critters larger and scarier!)
