The curious world of insects is becoming less of a mystery, as photographer Lee Peiling gets claustrophobic with these creepy crawlers and delivers mind-blowing, high-definition close-up photographs, which are almost painting-like in nature. The series, known as 'Small World' is reminiscent of the iconic BBC series 'Planet Earth,' as it delivers the kind of detail and insight into the natural world that virtually gives viewers a new set of eyes. It also gives viewers an ability to explore the world beyond what they think they know.

Though she only picked up a camera for the first time three years ago, the Malaysian photographer has perfected the Bokeh focus technique, which gives her technicolor photography that painting-like feel. It's an intimate look into the insect world unlike any other, and the attention Lee Peiling is receiving as a result is well-deserved.
