A fascinating look at insects through the eyes of photographers and artists, featuring high resolution photos, scientific illustrations and sculpture.

 Manning Valley photographer, Kevin Mitchell has spent the past 2 years painstakingly photographing insects using an interesting technique called focus stacking. The camera is moved in minute steps to take between 40 to 200 photographs of each insect, the individual images are then combined to achieve the complete sharpness and fine details of each insect.
