Extreme Macro – Mind-blowing Insect Photos by Johan J.Ingles-Le Nobel

Some of the best I’ve seen. I think I like all of them.

Mind blowing, amazing work! I’m giving up macro photography after seeing these!


Sandy, trust me, if I can, then you can do this too. Have a look at my site at http://extreme-macro.co.uk/ – it’s a learning site that has more or less everything I know about extreme macro.

Good luck,
– Johan
