18 Insects That Are Really Beautiful

-ADVERTISEMENT-

Insects may not seem like the most aesthetically pleasing creatures on this planet, but they are, as always, just waiting to surprise you. When we see a spider, we instinctively flinch and we can’t help but run in fear from wasps. We enjoy butterflies in our gardens but when a moth makes its way into the house, it’s time to get the bug spray.

While there are many insects in this world that make the hair stand up on your skin, you’d be surprised by the beauty to be found in these pests as well. Macro photography has gone a long way in displaying the kaleidoscopic loveliness of insects up close. Here we see a more distant but equally lovely and multicolored view of these creepers, crawlers, and fliers with the 15 most colorful and bizarrely beautiful insects you’ll ever see.
