Ireneusz Irass Waledzik, 29, from Poland, uses macro photography to reveal the fascinating colours and shapes of tiny insects. He said: “I love macro photography, I spend a lot of time at it. The different shapes of insects’ eyes fascinates me.

“These bugs are bling and it must be so important to them to show bright and colourful markings; they might be small but they have a big impact. I want to show the world the amazing insects unnoticed to the naked eye.”

Waledzik’s photos were published in many world famous publications like “Digital Camera World, “National Geographic”, “Foto-Kurier”, “Digital Photographer”, “Digital Camera Polska”, “Photo Plus” and other. He is also the author of several exhibitions. Check other photos at 500px.
