The macro and highly magnified photos of butterflies’ wings show the scales that make up the beautiful patterns that we see. Butterflies and moths both belong to the scientific order Lepidoptera (scaly wing). They are symbols of natural beauty, but Linden Gladhill, a biochemist and photographer, has created an amazing set of photographs that introduce us to the natural beauty of butterflies and moths on a higher level not seen by the naked eye.

“I’m completely enchanted by the physical world around me and obsessed by its natural beauty. My career in science has magnified this feeling of awe. For me, photography is a way to capture this physical beauty and to pass this feeling on to others,” he writes on his Flickr account.
