These mesmerising close-up photographs of insects reveal intricate details which are usually invisible to the naked eye.  In one striking image an enormous red creature with sharp pincers on its mouth looks like an alien - but it is actually a Red Paper Wasp. <br />
<br />
Other insects photographed in the fascinating collection include bees, robber flies, a white and red tiger moth, and a longhorn beetle.   A Rhubarb Weevil, which typically measures just half an inch, has been captured in such detail that the tiny hairs on its brown body are visible. Teacher and freelance photographer Roni Hendrawan took these hyperreal pictures in forests and gardens near his home in Toboali, on Bangka Island, Indonesia.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
