I jus found out, via the "This isn't happiness" tumblr blog, about an artist, Yudy Sauw, who takes macro photographs of insects' eyes... Stunning!
All macro photographs by Yudy Sauw
I'm sure these will become inspiration for future drawings by yours truly. In the meantime, enjoy the composition and the amazing colors!
Many insect-pollinated flowers contain ultraviolet pigments that only their pollinating insects (and perhaps birds) can see. Many flowers are more strikingly coloured in the UV than in the visible spectrum. Furthermore, markings, visible only in the UV, act as taxi markers to guide the landed insects to the pollen and nectar food rewards.
