Even if you have an intolerance for bacteria or anything related to germs, the Heikki Leis Afterlife photo series may just shed some light on the beauty of decomposition.

The photographer celebrates rotting fruit and every piece of fungus that comes along with it. The beauty of the series is that you probably wouldn't even know what you're looking at it if no one told you the images are of fruit breaking down. Getting up close and personal with the many facets of decomposition, the photos feature rainbow colors of mysterious furry things combined with the occasional bug or two.

Check out the Heikki Leis Afterlife series to see what goes on after you throw that apple core into the garbage can.
