Incredible Macro Shots of Insects Shot by the USGS

By Anthony Thurston on September 13th 2013

I don’t know about you, but I think that true macro shots of insects are some of the coolest (and creepiest) images that I have ever seen. That is no different for this awesome set of insect macro shots that have been released by the USGS.

The USGS Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab has posted hundreds of really amazing high quality macro photos of bees and other insects to their Flickr page as par of the lab’s mission to document and survey America’s native bee species. You can check out the full collection on the USGS Flickr profile here. I have also placed a few of the ones that have stood out to me below, enjoy!
