Microsculpture

Photographer Levon Biss has perfected an approach to macro photography which involves compositing roughly eight to ten thousand images into a final image of unsurpassed clarity and detail. He has collaborated with an entomologist at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History to photograph unique insect specimens. Prints of his photographs in large format (up to three meters across) will be exhibited at the museum from 27 May through 30 October, but if you can't make it in person you can view the zoomable images on his site or watch a video which explains the history of the project and provides details of his process.

What happens when you magnify grains of sand 250 times?

You get some amazing pictures and yet another "everything around is beautiful at a level that is impossible to be aware of all at once" moment.

That stings!

Macro photos of insects stinging. What it says on the label - don't click if seeing insects biting and stinging squicks you out. Remarkable photos though.

He discusses his macro methods here; a more general guide for making your own (not necessarily macro) 3D images can be found here. More 3D goodness at the Flickr Stereophotography (and stereovideography!) pools. Via EMRJKC'94. [more inside]

Flies! And other neat stuff.

Flies! Yup, flies. New Jersey flies. Doesn't get any better than that! This is a super-cool photo gallery that also includes bees, butterflies and moths, ladybugs, spiders, and other little creatures. Other than the bugs, my faves are the psychedelic milk splashes and that pure Jersey water. All this and more, here.
