Insect and Arachnid Macros by Nicky Bay

Cicadae Parasite Beetle (Rhipiceridae)

Singapore-based photographer Nicky Bay (previously at Neatorama) shoots macro photos of insects, arachnids, and fungi from remote locations all over the globe. Bay went on 46 different shoots in 2014 and encountered numerous beautiful and unusual species. Bay has added ultraviolet light to his subjects, which enables him to capture them as they fluoresce.

Follow Bay's Facebook page to view more of his work, and visit Colossal to see more of the collection shown here.
