Butterfly Wings Up Really Close

Photographer Linden Gledhill, has made a fantastic series of photographs of butterfly wings taken at varying levels of magnification and showing to full effect the intricate natural beauty of their colourful wings.

When he’s not hassling insects for a photo, he also photographs and grows his own snowflakes. What a guy.
