Insects and Spiders Galore

Jack sent me this link to an amazing Dark Roasted Blend post on Glamorous Insects. And wouldn't you know it, the bulk of the photos belong to our very own Igor Siwanowicz.

Here are but a few of the photos. I strongly recommend, especially if you are an insectophile, that you click the links above and look at all the others. Food for the eyes, my friends.

Those creatures, and all the others captured by skilled Igor Siwanowicz and his digital camera, are a true display of art. More likely Beauty Overload!

Wow! These are some really awesome pictures.

I hope that most of cyber-space knows what a fan I am of Igor's work. A-Freakin-Mazing. And YES, that is a technical term. ;p

I love how that picture of the caterpillar captures all of the soft folds and wrinkles of it's body.
Igor's photos always take me back to how I looked at spiders and insects as a kid; I was in awe of the alien beauty of them – every detail was so alive. I never thought that photos would be able to capture that. This is where art enters the realm of magic for me.

Glamourous insects, indeed. That first shot, especially, looks like a GQ photoshoot from another planet.
