The United States Geological Survey has just released an amazing series of photos that offer us a look at bees in beautifully detailed portraits. The bees are photographed against black backgrounds, highlighting every minute details their is such as their colour bodies, wings and giant alien-like eyes.

The photos were taken using a macro lens and software that automatically takes photos at a certain depth by researcher Sam Droege. The images were then all blended together to give us the photos you see here. As Droege says himself “They’re like aliens from another world.”
