I saw this in the Daily Mail and thought this would be an interesting thing to share with you! These photgraphs are amazing and I never really thought about the way bugs would look like in a downpour, has anyone seen bugs like this? This photographer has amazing patience and perserverance.

Daily Mail Reporter


Boy, this rain is bugging me: Amazing pictures show how microscopic insects cope in a downpour. The images make them look more like aliens than insects.
Ondrej Pakan, from Myjava, Slovakia, captured the stunning series of microscopic insects following a downpour.





I'm not the most knowledgeable in the world but wonder how a bug feels if its caught in a downpour? Anyway I thought these pics were cool.

Wow fantastic photographs, thanks for bringing them to our attention.
Humbling to think that we may be microscopic insects to other species in the universe that we cannot concieve of.

I just wanted to note that none of these insects are considered "microscopic". The pictures are taken with a microscopic lens. If the post title was accurate I would not have wasted my time looking at old news.

Very nice pics but more like macro than micro.

Ill bet the photographer has a hand held water spray gun
A lot of macro photographers that specialize in water droplets use a sugar water solution.

Amazing photos! Although all the coloring is fake.

You just had to have that little bit of attitude there at the end.

Regardless, the images are fantastic, I want a wallpaper of one.

I wonder about that spray bottle idea...but it's easier to catch bugs in the morning before the dew evaporates which is how I'm guessing he got some of these.
Gorgeous pictures though. truly beautiful pics.

Wow!

Those pictures are pretty incredible.

The way the droplets magnify the features of the bugs is pretty amazing.

Thanks for the post OP, nice catch


But next time you should put the pictures IN your post, it's doesn't take much time at all, and a lot of people would really appreciate that little extra effort.

either way, nice post.

gooday!

That's pretty amazing photography.Imagine that the water probably out weighs the insect in most cases.That would be cool to see a slow motion video of one of those insects shaking like a dog.

What a great way to start your membership off on ATS.

I hope this isnt the attitude you're going to be adopting for the rest of your stay.

Lighten up, you'd be surprised how much you'll enjoy it.

It's a pretty petty argument you've got there, these are pretty amazing pictures and this is what you decide to post in your reply?

Amazing picutres, the quality is simply stunning and in perfect focus!

I espessially love the lensing effect from the water over the eyes allowing you to see the cells of the eye perfectly - so very cool!

These insects must be tripping big time, trying to figure out what image their eyes give their brains, when covered in droplets...

There was many blue eyed insects, but no blondes?...


Nice pics!

Petty argument?

I was thinking the same thing, there is nothing microscopic about these insects, they can be seen with the naked eye, so I don´t get why anyone would call them microscopic insects, if such a thing even exists.

Misleading title, no matter how cool you think the pics are.

Nice find, crazy pictures


That ant seems to be having a hard time. Lucky he didn't end up like this guy

yet.

Those are some incredible pictures. The bugs are quite handsome somehow the way he has captured them give them new and undiscovered dignity. The droplets do not however make every bug look twice as big as it is. The person writing the text has no spatial skill. They are 20% larger than they might appear naturally. The ladybug with the seed on her back was pretty amazing. S&F!

But the title is still made by the dailymail, and not by OP, so he did nothing wrong in copy/paste the original title


Sorry for oftopic.

Noone was attacking the OP.

The title is misleading, are you going to argue that?

And still, if I was the OP I would not copy clearly false wording.

Cool pics though.
