Dew-Soaked Bugs Are 'Small Monsters' In Ondrej Pakan's Macro Photo Series (PHOTOS)

Ondrej Pakan gets up and personal with some of nature's smallest critters in his incredible macro photo series.

According to Treehugger, the Slovakian photographer used macrophotography to capture the bugs on camera just moments after a downpour of rain.

The captivating images feature a wide variety of insects and spiders "glistening to hundreds of dew drops," Environmental Graffiti observes.

"We can discover a world of small monsters. Each fly, bee and spider is a perfect predator or a warring victim in this empire. It's always a big surprise for me to find out how many species, forms and colors exist in this kingdom," Pakan wrote of the series on his website.

"I get soaked waiting for the rain to finish, but it all seems worth it when you get really great shots of the insects with drops on them," he told the Telegraph.
