Time for a break from the regular news. Here are some visual reminders of why we care for nature, and why we protect it. Thanks to the Guardian for bringing this photographer’s unique technique to our attention in the photo feature titled The butterfly effect: wings in extreme close-up – in pictures:
In his new series Metamorphosis, photographer Jake Mosher composes artworks using hundreds of exposures of highly magnified butterflies’ and moths’ wings

Limited edition, 1 of 1 pieces. When one sells, it will not be reprinted in any size, ever. This is your chance to own collectible, one-of-a-kind pieces of art the likes of which the world has never seen before.
These images are the composition of hundreds – and sometimes thousands – of 4:1 macro photographs of butterfly and moth wings. There is no artificial color, imported designs, or any “drawn” artifacts. This is art and photography intertwined, and these images are only available here. This work has been recognized as entirely unique to me.
I use Pure Art Printer’s proprietary metal art for these, unmatched in color, contrast, and durability. Each piece will come ready to hang, signed by me, and include a certificate of authenticity. The detail displayed in these images in truly unbelievable.
Please take time to visit my store, Wearing Wings, where many of these remarkable patterns have been transformed into wearable art. You can see them all here.
The Guardian’s display is anyway worth a full look:
