Startling close-up photos of bugs

Discussion started on

In today's Literary Hub, there's a sampling of hyper-close-up photos of ordinary bugs. From a book not specifically aimed at children, but kids should get a kick out of the pictures. My favorite is the "Grape Skeletonizer Bug."

Love this! The first close-ups of bugs I ever saw were of Robert Hooke's in Micrographia. Check some out here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micrographia

These are amazing. I like to take close-ups of bugs and other small critters, but I have nothing like these. Thanks.
