Intimate portraits of surprisingly expressive insects

Check out these remarkable photos by Colin Hutton. Of this series, he says: ‘Many people see insects as creepy and revolting if they even notice them at all, but viewing these tiny creatures through a macro lens presents them in an entirely new light.

How many people have actually seen the “face” of a tiny jumping spider, or the beautiful compound eyes of a female horsefly? I hope these images will help people appreciate the beauty of nature’s smaller creatures’.
