10 Amazing Macro Photography Videos

Updated on October 18, 2014

A Closer Look at the Little Things in Life

Anybody who has ever looked through a microscope knows that there are entire worlds all around us, so tiny we can't see, and so foreign and fantastic that they seem more like science-fiction than everyday life. Imagine how the world must look to an ant or ladybug. Through the work of these talented macro-photographers, we can get a glimpse of what life at that size might be like.

Here are 10 completely amazing macro photography videos. Enjoy!

      I love the idea of changing your perspective, its' a them in my art I use often. We base the size of things based on our own size but your pictures show the grand scheme of things, blessed..:)rob
