Are You Ready To Get Up Close and Personal With Your Favorite Bugs?

JULY 25, 2014

Warning: If you don't like bugs, this post may creep you out a little bit. (Or a lot.) Indonesian photographer Yudy Sauw likes to get up close and personal with the local wildlife. No, not tigers or monkeys. Sauw prefers the company of bugs. His speciality is taking extreme close-ups of local bugs in a process known as macro photography. The results are actually pretty amazing, unless of course you don't like bugs. In which case the results are terrifying. Take a look below and decide for yourself.

Yudy Sauw's work is great, but he's not the only photographer with a bug hobby. Check out a sampling of these other insect macro shots from around the web.
