7 mind-boggling macro views of insects

If there is one thing you can say about physiotherapist slash photographer Miroslaw Swietek is that he has a hell of a lot of patience which would be a requirement when looking at these incredible photographs of insects covered in early morning dew.

Using a flashlight he hunts up these motionless insects in the darkness and then sets up his camera and flash just millimeters away from them

Mr Swietek said: ‘I took up photography as a relaxing hobby two and a half years ago and I particularly like taking pictures of insects and lizards.

‘I photograph them in their natural environment in the forest next to my village.

‘They all are covered in dew because I go to the forest in the morning at around 3am.

‘At 3am to 4am insects are sleepy and taking photos of them is easy, but it is very difficult to find them.
