If you asked someone what they did for a living and they said "I photograph snails and other small bugs", you'd probably just walk away. But Russian artist and photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko is changing the way people think about these small creatures.
Mishchenko seems to capture the majesty and personality of these bugs effortlessly. His fascination of capturing photos of bugs stems from his childhood when his parents took him camping, now his passion is clearly evident in his work.
These photos will make you stop and take a moment to look next time you walk past one of earths smaller beings.
