This is a photo series featuring ants as the models. Photographer Andrey Pavlov uses a macro lens to capture the up close and personal lives of ants. Yes, the shots are staged by Andrey, but those are real ants doin’ their thang.
The spiny Flower Mantis, or Pseudocreobotra wahlbergii, is a beautiful and colorful flower mantis. They are white with orange and green stripes, and as adults they have a beautiful patch of color on their wings that looks like an eye.
This photo represents a dragon fly in full motion flying just over the water as they often do. Notice the blue contrasting the orange back drop, and the intensity of the dragon flies colors reflect off the water.
