Photographers: Thomas Shahan. Insects Close-Up


    [Hey! Im Thomas Shahan, an artist and macrophotographer from Oklahoma. In my spare time over the past few years, Ive been shooting portraiture of local arthropods. Why would I devote countless hours to tramping through forests, fields and the like searching for insects and spiders? Well, despite some common beliefs, arthropods (members of the phylum Arthropoda – insects, spiders, crustaceans...) represent an endlessly varied, wildly beautiful and fascinating bunch of animals with surprisingly personable faces and behavior. Often, all it takes is simply inspecting their lives on a closer level to turn repulsion to reverence]. – Thomas Shahan
