Insects, already one of nature's more terrifying things, become even more horrifying - or, depending on how you feel about them, impressive - when you see them up close. Presuming you, the reader, are human, you never truly come face-to-face with these visages on a daily basis. But thanks to the wonders of microscopes and DSLR technology, you can now point these bugs out on a police lineup if need be. Antennae, mandibles, and big-ass eyes are all on display, showcasing the insect world's extraordinary variation of design. From bees to weevils, the crawlers here have profiles that are simultaneously both creepy and captivating. Try as you like, you cannot look away.
