Insecten zijn sexy

Thomas Shahan heeft een prachtige serie foto's gemaakt. Extreme closeups van insecten, die je kleuren laat zien die je anders niet ziet. De insecten zien er geeneens eng uit, en ze hebben bijzondere namen. In volgorde van plaatsing: ommatidia of a dragonfly, blue faced meadow hawk, pink grasshopper, transverse flower fly, large fly head, damsel fly head, male stripped horsefly. En gevraagd naar het waarom van de kleuren vertelt Thomas: 'Arthropods have vibrant colors for countless different reasons - but at least with the salticids they often have ornate markings & setae as a result of sexual selection - many salticids have wild and amazing courtship displays!'. Het draait allemaal om sex!
