If you've ever wondered what insects look like when you're right up in their faces, then you can thank your lucky stars for these bugged-out Steve Gschmeissner pics.

Taken with the aid of an ultra-powerful scanning electron microsope, each of these pictures offer an unparalleled look at the creepy crawlies that play such a huge role in the earth's food chain. Unfortunately, for those out there who might have the idea in their heads that insects are ugly and scary-looking, this collection won't offer much evidence to the contrary. Even still, however, you just can't deny the sheer awesomeness of being able to see a caterpillar, a moth or even a spider (although not actually an insect) with this kind of detailed intensity.
