I am no fan of insects in general, but I can't help to be anything other than fascinated by entemolgist, Steven Kutcher's artistic work with the insects he studies:

"I have made visible the hidden world of the insect footprint. When an insect walks on your hand, you may feel the legs move but nothing visible remains, only a sensation. These works of art render these insect tracks and routes visible, producing a visually pleasing piece while conveying pertinent, scientific information..."

Who knew creepy-crawlies could be so unintentionally talented? To learn more about his methods or to even get your hands on some of his work, check out his website here.
