Cirque du Freak – The Incredible Insects Portraits Gallery

I always believed that nature made us humans such a great favour when creating insects and deciding to keep them at a small scale. A little imagination exercise -  a frontal intermezzo with same-sized-as-me-kitchen bug, fly or dragonfly  – scares me more than any popular horror movie. If you look at the insects macro photos, you will discover that most of them are scary, while some of them actually quite funny. Although insects look so strange, I’m totally against killing them. Contemplating from a distance is my cup of tea when thinking of insects. Take a look at these some spooky insect photos.
