Outstanding Macro Photos of Insects and Snails

Outstanding Macro Photos of Insects and Snails

Macro insect photographer Vadim Trunov has a great portfolio of some really outstanding insect photos. Now we have featured insect photos before, like these glamour style shots, or these unusual images of a dead fly, but Trunov's images are different. They seem to capture life as it is happening, freezing moments in time with these little creatures.

Pretty awesome, these never get old. The grasshopper and snail looking straight up are my favorites.

I just typed out a post stating that some of these seemed 'posed'/staged and not 'candids'... and then I remembered... they're insects. 

I guess that's what sets these macros apart from others.

awesome !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

awesome ................


Absolutely stunning. The snail on bottom / grasshopper on top is my favorite. When I look at well-shot macro stuff, I always feel like an inferior photographer! Anyone else?
