Wolf spider macro shot by Thomas Shahan

You know they’re out there. You pass them every time you’re outdoors, or indoors for that matter. However, I bet you’ve never seen them this close up in all their technicolor glory. I’m talking about bugs. Ticks, spiders, flies, centipedes, millipedes, mites and more like you’ve never seen them before. Up close, macro and in HD. Talented DIY photographer Thomas Shahan has been filming and manipulating photographs of bugs for years. He knows so much about them that he may as well be an entomology professor. This video is an introduction to how he films, what equipment he uses and bug aesthetics and anatomy. Watch and be amazed. When that’s not enough, find more of his work at
