Micro Insects

Photographer Tomas Rak does microscopic photography of insects. To get the amazing details, he takes up to 680 separate shots to make one whole image. The insect is placed on a special micro slide that lets Tomas move them one fifth of a millimeter at a time. Using a computer editing program, he puts the shots all together to create an image, such as the wasp above, that allows for detail as never seen before.
