Wet insects inspire nature photographer

Posted Oct 01 2008 5:07pm

Correction appended.

Nature photographer Martin Amm came up with the idea to take pictures of insects covered with dew.

He told us dragonflies aren’t his only focus but that he admires “their awesome structures and appearance.” 

“This year I’m concentrating on the birth of dragonflies, that’s why there are so many dragonflies pictures in myportfolio.”

Amm of Kronach, Germany, considers photography “just a hobby” for now but hopes to make it a career. He’s a fan of Jim Brandenburg, the well known National Geographic wildlife photographer who shoots wildlife and landscapes from his home base in Ely, Minn. “He’s one of my favorite photographers. His photographs are just incredible.” 

Amm’s photos are pretty incredible, too. For more of his images visit his site onDeviant Art.
