Photographer: Don Komarechka


Macro photography requires a particular eye and technical discipline. Komarechka demonstrates both in this image, but that alone is not why I picked.

Wildlife photography tends to focus on subjects to which the viewer can easily relate. Insects and arachnids are not defined as relatable by most folks. So, when a photographer is able to showcase their remarkable, if somewhat alien beauty, I take notice.

In both the spider and the fly, Komarechka accomplishes this. Outstanding.
