Pheromones, Bugs and Urchins-Oh My!

I can't say enough about these images from Christopher Marley. He photographs all manner of natural curiosities with a keen eye for bringing out overlooked details in the world around us.

Best of all, he was inspired to pursue this work by the markets in Bangkok. I spent a lot of time there staring at the crazy, colorful beetles stacked up in dusty frames. Christopher takes his subjects a step further with simple, clean compositions that draw attention to their natural, organic beauty.

Top to bottom: Firey Birdwing, Ornate Weevil Alfonso Urchins.
