Shikhei Insects

I always liked macro and electron photography, the way they reveal a level of detail and complexity that we just don't perceive normally. Here we have some superb photos by Shikhei Goh that show off the wonders of our little insect friends. We get those amazing compound eyes, the shimmering iridescence of the body and  the detail of all those tiny hairs. The water drops on the eyes make great little lenses bringing even more detail into view for us - plus they just look cool.
Check out Shikhei's 500px gallery to see heaps more, plus those little geckos etc.
