Astonishing insects – a photo gallery by Leon Baas
Leon Baas has a unique way of using macro-photography to reveal the wonderful world of insects in their natural habitat – from a ladybird about to lift off to a green-veined white butterfly hidden in the undergrowth.
Leon Baas is a Dutch nature photographer with a great passion for small bugs.
He is constantly searching for new ways to photograph insects in their natural habitat.
By experimenting with light sources using self-made depth of field (dof) filters and a special wide-angle macro lense he has developed an original way of capturing a bug's life.
Over the years, Leon's photography has achieved publishing success in magazines, newspapers and advertising campaigns due to his distinctive style of photography.
