Doesn’t like human, we trained ourselves to do something. Some insects have gift which is borned with them. Those tiny architects can build something really amazing, perfectly balanced and well structured. When you first look at them, you might think those bug buildings appear manmade—tiny log cabins, gates, tents, and fortresses blocking each insect from the world just beyond their carefully placed twigs and segments of silk. However, not many of us have the chances to see those tiny architectures. Thanks to Singapore-based photographer Nicky Bay, he bought us below amazing photos and show us another world.
If you don’t reed the title and just look at the photos, you might think these are some new breeds of flowers.

See some of Janiak’s amaizing work below or find more on his Instagram page.

From Ireland-based photographer Tomasz Skoczen‘s camera, these ladybugs look absolutely enchanting when they are glistening with rain or dew. Using his Canon 5D Mark II and his macro lens, Tomasz took mostly of these black and red winged insects in the garden of his backyard. Skoczen has learned a great deal about ladybugs, from where to find them to how many species they have, from their appearance to their behavior. No wonder he can capture so many amazing ladybug photos.
