Ethereal Insect Photographs Will Cure Your Phobia of BugsS

Malaysian photographer Lee Peiling created images so fantastic, it feels like you're peering into another world. A world populated with helpful praying mantises and ants ready to lend a helping hand.

The photographer utilized the Bokeh photography technique to achieve the ethereal quality of the macro-photos. The bokeh technique emphasizes the aesthetic quality of out of focus areas and how those blurred areas render light. The highlights in those blurred areas usually produce a halo of light.

According to Colossal, Lee picked up the camera for the first time three years ago. Imagine how incredible her photographs will be after six years. [Lee Peiling via Colossal]
