I usually get a little freaked out by insects (I don’t like ‘em), but these images by photographer Igor Siwanowicz are damn beautiful. I just can’t get over the gorgeous color combinations and textures of the insects. Lovely!

Okay, Mike Libby’s Insect Lab creations are not functional robot-insect cyborgs, but they’re so gosh darn pretty to look at. Prices can range anywhere between $400 to $1700. Now, when is Mike going to take it a step further and introduce us to our new robot-insect overlords?

Borrowing from science fiction and fact, Insect Lab customizes real insect specimens with antique watch parts and other technological components. From ladybugs to grasshoppers, each is individually hand adorned, and original- a unique celebration of the contradictions between nature and technology.

Not being able to read Japanese there is not much I can write here, but I think a picture is worth a thousand words in this case! Damien Hirst take note.
