Macro Bee Portraits by Sam Droege

Published Jan 3, 2014

Outstanding images by Sam Droege, the head of the USGS Native Bee Inventory and Monitoring Program in Maryland, USA.

The USGS is an organization that monitors the health and habitat of bees in North America.

“When we started looking at these pictures, I just wanted to gaze at these shots for long periods of time,” Sam says. “I had seen these insects for many years, but the level of detail was incredible. The fact that everything was focused, the beauty and the arrangement of the insects themselves — the ratios of the eyes, the golden means, the french curves of the body, and the colors that would slide very naturally from one shade to another were just beautiful! It was the kind of thing that we could not achieve at the highest level of art.”
