Nature in macro and micro

A look at the tiny beautiful details of nature from Belgian photographer Johan Dierckx

May 22, 2014

Aminus3 photographer Johan Dierckx shares some wonderful images of details in nature.

In his words.... Protection of and respect for the precious nature that is surrounding us, can be achieved by admiration. The beauty of a species -- whether it is a simple flower, a rare orchid, a beautifully colored butterfly, a scary dragonfly, or a slimy fungus -- is revealed in its details. During my nature walks in Belgium or abroad, I try to capture those details.

If anyone replies to one of my images -- "Hey, wow, I never noticed this before!" I have achieved my goal....
