As a big fan of macro photography, we have many featured posts about it on this site. Somehow, most of them are about insects, such as dragon flyer, moth, ant and praying mantises. And today, Spain-based photographer Alejandro Ferrer Ruiz’s bring us a set of amazing macro photos of the dew-covered ladybug. The photographer also gives a whimsical sense of personality to this little creature, make it really stand out in his works. You can see more of his work on his 500px page. [source]
I love macro photos, however, something macro insect photos really freak me out with it super close-up. But the story is totally different when those insect are soaking in dew, which is extremely beautiful and glittering. Macro photography, as shown here by David Chambon, a France-based photographer, requires a decent light-source – and in this case it is the jewel-like droplets which capture the light so essential for these works of art. They look like pure gems! Click here to see more of David’s work online. [source]

Dew drops, the water droplets condensed from the air, are a beautiful gift from Mother Nature. They are vivid and delicate, warm and cold at the same time. They sparkle like pearls on the surface. Here, a compilation of this great photography is showcased to inspire and motivate photographers of sorts for ideas on cool photographs. Hope you enjoy! [via], [via], [via]
