Creepy Cuteness

Here are a suite of coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) images of various insects/bugs and they are incredible (Gallery the site). Appreciating the complexity and ingenuity of these tiny creatures is something we dont get to do all the time.
Since I have been doing the concept work on Moths vs Butterflies, this is of extra interest - but check out the awesome maggot, it is just so so cute and ghastly at the same time...

This is just s small sample from the gallery and the site has plenty of other electron microscope images to admire as well.
