Striking Microscopic Insect Photography By Pavan Kumar

Talented photographer, Pavan Kumar, is able to capture what one might consider impossible... the beauty of insects. For many people, insects just make us feel squeamish. It's a fair assumption to say many people just don't like bugs. At all. And truth be told, I am one of those people. 

Yet, Pavan Kumar has somehow taken these mesmerizing images with such striking colors, you can't help but stop and marble at the beauty that is obviously there. It's a beauty you can't see until you see it. 

We had the opportunity to ask Kavan the simple question, "Why bugs?" Out of everything in the world to photograph, why these tiny creatures most don't care about? Pavan Kumar responded saying, "Insects are the most ignored creatures, thanks to their size. We see colourful birds, elephants, tigers, and lions in wallpapers and HD image galleries, but none of the insects! They're amazing creatures too. They look beautiful too. Let's show the world what is seldom seen!"

Pavan Kumar has accomplished just that, showing the world what is seldomly seen. See more of Pavan Kumar's insanely beautiful photographs on his Instagram

Golden Lion Tamarin: Adorable Monkeys Of Sunshine

Monkeys are naturally adorable so we needed to take a moment to appreciate the monkeys made from sunshine rays -- the golden lion tamarin

The golden lion tamarin gets its name from its lion-like thick mane and it's beautiful silky, long golden fur. It's an unusually bright and striking animal that can only be found in Rio de Janeiro, and even there only in fragmented forest habitats. 

The golden lion is an endangered species with only around 2,500 left of them in the wild. Due to Brazil's rainforest disappearing over agriculture, industry, and the ever-expanding logging, sadly, the golden lion tamarin is in danger of disappearing along with it.

Welcome To The Dark Side: Animal Edition

All these animals only have one thing in common... besides being animals, of course, they all look as if they've turned to the dark side. And we gotta say, the dark side looks pretty darn badass. Maybe we'll transition, too. 

Whether it's due to melanistic or partially melanistic, or just having unusual striking (and slightly demonic) features, these animals are flat out awesome and we want to join their crew.
