Photographer Levon Biss was looking for a new, extraordinary subject when one afternoon he and his young son popped a ground beetle under a microscope and discovered the wondrous world of insects. Applying his knowledge of photography to subjects just five millimeters long, Biss created a process for shooting insects in unbelievable

microscopic detail. Here some of the photographs from his “Microsculpture series”:

Jewel Longhorn beetle
Paris Peacock
Dung beetle
Marion Flightless moth
Short-nosed weevil
Tortoise beetle
Stalk-eyed fly
Treehopper
