Today Zhoogs Top Lists presents you a fine selection of the most beautiful macro photography. I’ve honed it down to only insects (and yes, I know there are spiders here too) as the list would otherwise become too long. Also, photographing insects is a pretty difficult job, as the buggers just won’t sit still. The following artists managed to frame them in an incredible way though!
Below you’ll find a listing of the most talented macro artists and a small selection of their work. Be sure to check out the artists websites (each photo is a link).

I hope you enjoy this one again!

Leon Baas

Leon is an enthusiastic macro photographer and has developed his own special style. He has been featured on many photography websites and in the Dutch magazine Focus. He has also showed off his work in the Canon Headquarters in the Netherlands.

    Hi, these beautiful photos are some of many that have given me the incentive to have a go at this type of photography, I have recently bought the canon eos 450D CAMERA and hope to get a good Macro lens to suit which will help me start (with a lot of practice) to help me start albums of my own. Lovely photos, thanks for sharing them with us.
