This may bug you…

Ezra, my oldest, loves picture books full of bugs and other creepy crawlies. I try to act strong, like the subject matter doesn’t make me uncomfortable. Most of the time, when we read together, my heart is racing until the book closes.

Dusan Beno puts my pattering heart to rest. His work is much more up close and personal. It’s magic for me, I get sucked in and want to see more.

He primarily uses a Canon MP-E Macro lens for this kind of work. The main benefit of a lens like this is it’s 5x magnification. It’s basically like shooting a rifle with a high powered scope. It’s a completely different experience. It’s really cool too.

Check out more of Dusan’s work on his website500px1x.com and Flickr.
