30 Stunning examples of Macro Photography of insects

Macro photography is taking extremely close-up images of subjects. The technically correct definition would be to take an image at a 1:1 ratio but, in common usage, the term has come to mean any close-up photography.

Images for macro photography can be limited only by the photographer’s imagination. While nature provides the most obvious subjects for macro photography, common items around us are also possible subjects.

Here I collected 30 Stunning examples of Macro Photography of insects. Every image is linked to author’s page where you can explore more stuff related to it.

Suraj Awesome work done just wanna know which lens have you used for this Shoot


They are all very nice. I am a little puzzled about the third Macro shot from the top. Looks as it it was having a face wash? Or did did the Photographer use the Water Hose on the poor thing? It's the only shot I don't take too. :-(


Hi I would like anyone who takes these images to contact me about using them in a national newspaper which we would of course credit, you can get hold of me on



Stunning photos. The details for the insect faces brings to light a whole new view into that world for me. The snail photo is a great one too.


insects ewww!.. but yes have to see the colors... should be using some hitechno gadgets

Ok I was expecting some pretty images but instead got a bit grossed out. I'm so glad insects aren't larger than they are. Can you imagine those things at dog or horse size!?
