Insectophilia

Here's a jaw-dropping gallery of microphotography, looking at the truly astonishing beauty of the insect world - up close and personal. Most of the images are from photographer Igor Siwanowich, although there are contributions from others in there as well. Reminds me of the amazing television series Life in the Undergrowth, which not only showed the beauty of these creatures, but also the strange habits, skills and strategies they employed during their short lifespan.

And I for one, welcome our mantis overlords...
