Photography: Insects caught in a downpour

One of my favorite photographic sites where I could wander for hours. I just had to share these.

e MORFES

Taken by Russian photographer, Vadim Trunov in the Voronezh region in the west of Russia, they show a variety of insects dealing with a downpour. Trunov takes his pictures using a macro lens to capture close up details with incredible clarity.

  10. Wow. I’m always amazed at how photographers can capture these tiny creatures. I mean, just finding them is a challenge, not to mention taking pictures of them. Thank you for sharing!

    I always wondered how they stayed dry…although this might not keep them too dry. I can’t imagine how hard it was to capture this shot. Very talented photographer!

    Perhaps I have an over-active imagination, but some of the pix remind me of creatures in a science fiction monster movie….and they probably do look like monsters to creatures smaller than themselves. But this is Mother Nature’s show, and what a drama it is!
