These beautiful bug-eyed portraits photographed by Yudy Sauw show extreme close-up shots of insects native to Indonesia. The building supply shop owner and hobby photographer takes pictures of common bugs with the goal of one day compiling the images into a book. His creepy crawler subjects include species like yellow jackets and tiger beetles. They are rendered almost unrecognizable in the vibrantly hued captures, showing just how much color can be found in the natural world around us.

According to Neatorama, in order to achieve these stunning macro shots, the hobby photographer uses a Nikon D700 camera with a Nikon 105mm AF f/2.8 lens. For super close-ups, he uses Raynox super macro conversion lenses.
