These bugs look like they’re from another planet thanks to these captivating macro shots – taken with a mobile phone.
The fascinating images are a real insight into a bug’s life but surprisingly the detailed pictures were taken using an Android smartphone.
Tsvetan Georgiev Ganev, from Bulgaria, cleverly adapted his Galaxy Note using a ribbed macro lens taken from an old camcorder and took the stunning pictures using a self-made macroblock.
Remarkably the 40-year-old football coach also created the lighting himself.
He said: “I love to see the insects so close.
“I like how they actually look and I also like the preparation around taking a macro shot.
“The most difficult aspect is the light, if it’s too strong it radiates heat and because it’s very close to the insect I have to act quickly.”
