When you photograph something up-close, the resulting images open the doors to a completely different world. That’s the magic of macro photography as you are able to see so many details you never noticed before.

The fantastical nature of macro photography takes on a whole new level when shooting insect macros. This post is a collection of some wonderful insect macro photos that will hopefully inspire you to get up-close to some insects and capture such macro shots of your own.

(Note: If you’d like to capture better macro insect shots, take a look at our new macro insect photography extended case studies to learn and ‘borrow’ from specific examples.)
