Nature In The Spotlight – Photographer Snaps Insects And Plants Under UV lights

This is nature under a completely different spotlight. Taken in a pitch black studio with ultraviolet lights, the vivid images show beautiful flowers and pollen-covered insects in a strange fluorescent light.

The altered lighting shows up stunning patterns on a dragonfly’s wings and leaves insects’ and spiders’ eyes glowing bright blue. Plants also take on a more sinister shade, radiating a deep purple against the black background. Don Komarechka (previously), from Barrie, Canada, took the photos in a specially configured studio in his back garden.
