There is so much visual information for us to process that it's easy to walk past the tiniest things without noticing them. When we do spot a hoverfly, a damselfly, or a glistening dewdrop it is difficult to appreciate the level of detail and beauty that exists in these things - the human eye is not really designed for that; we live in a much bigger world.
Macro photography changes all this and, although it is a technically challenging discipline, it is so absorbing that it is easy to become lost for hours at a time inside the incredible world that exists beyond our normal view.
"beyond our normal view - vol. 3" is a collection of 64 macro photographs captured during 2010. The photographs in this 76-page book are arranged in four sections: hymenoptera (bees, wasps and ants), diptera (flies and other two-winged insects), odonata (damselflies), and other creatures (shield bugs, moths, ladybirds, alderflies, beetles, planthoppers, etc.)
