Default Cyrus Khamak

Cyrus Khamak may be the best macro photographer there is and is without a doubt the best I've ever seen. He made a video on YouTube of his work and the subjects are insects. Often when you see close up images of bugs, they appear horrific but Cyrus makes them looks so beautiful.

I agree with you those are some amazing photographs. The images do give you a different, calmer, perception of the little creatures.

And yet another: Lennart Nilsson. For over half a century he has photographed some of the most difficult subjects, often with beauty that transcends his photojournalism background.
See http://images.google.com/images?sour...ed=0CCYQsAQwAw and his many books.
