Life Captured in Macro

When I first came across these photos, I thought these were the creations of a fancy new fashion designer, but imagine my surprise when I realised they were the photographs of the wings of butterflies and moths taken by Linden Gledhill at a macroscopic level. You then realise that what looks like solid shapes are more like flurries of small petals creating the wonderful array of colour on these insects' wings.
