These Beautiful Photos Present Bugs and Insects Like You’ve Never Seen Them Before

I have always been a curious person, and as a child I spent most of the time with my nose inches above the ground tracking and observing little insects and animals. Their miniature world always fascinated me.

Nadav Bagim shot these amazing photos in a miniature studio in his kitchen. He didn’t manipulate or photoshop the photos in any way, instead opting to use a simple low-tech approach using artificial lighting and household objects, from vegetables and colored plastic bags to a water spray bottle. None of the insects were harmed, in fact they were rewarded with sugar cubes!
