The remarkable appearance of insects are revealed under the microscope - showing the intricate and colourful patterns on the skin of wasps, flies and ants. Photographer Javier Torrent was able to use insects he picked up in the field, or even in his own home for this set of incredible close-ups.

Setting up the microscope so he can magnify the animals to appear 100 times larger than normal, he was able to see unique features totally invisible to the naked eye.
