Would dew believe it: The stunning pictures of sleeping insects covered in water droplets.

Glistening in the early morning, these insects look like creatures from another planet as dew gathers on their sleeping bodies.


Captured in extreme close-up, one moth appears to be totally encrusted in diamonds as it rests on a twig.

I've seen similar photos before... Not sure whether it's the same photographer. You can't get dew drops that dense unless it's foggy at that time, which is common in some countries.

stunning, i will give it a try, the only problem is to wake up and look for them in the dark
you don't have to wake up in the dark to capture those shots.

These are amazing shots! Another one of those series that leaves one in awe. Would be nice if someone can capture a bug in motion shaking off the dews.

If only the human female species will accept water droplets as bling bling for their dresses. :)

Wow, this is pretty amazing.

Does seem to be staged though.
