Pest Pictures Ever

Mangesh Hattikudur

I've always been confused by the "picture says a 1000 words" phrase, mainly because my photography is considerably worse than my writing. I can write 1000 words on, say, swimming in mud and make it sound appealing, but it'd be hard for me to take a picture of it and make anyone want to dive in. I guess that's why I'm so stunned by these insect pics. I'm not particularly interested in looking at insects (Mary's post aside), but I just stumbled across these macro photos on the knuttz page, and the photos make the creatures look stunning. It almost makes me ashamed to own so many cans of Raid.
