Sure, you've heard about the birds and the bees, but what about the stink bugs and the cicadas? Obviously, we wouldn't have these bugs year after year if they weren't reproducing somehow. This colorful, and somewhat disturbing photo series collected by RJ Evans demonstrates that even bugs get busy.

Whether you favor the colorful queen butterflies or the rotting banana-like snout beetles, one thing is certain, you'll never look at ladybugs the same way again.

Implications - This is the kind of photography made possible because of technological developments of the last few years. Kudos to RJ Evans for digging deep and developing such an incredibly avant-garde collection of photographs.
