40 Beautiful Pictures of Insects

Most people when they think of insects, if at all they do so, think of them as pesky creatures that make life difficult for you. While this is not untrue, it is also not completely true. The fact is, our friends from the insect world have their functions to perform and their roles to play. We may not want to admit it, but it is true and this is because most of the insects we encounter are the kind that we work hard to keep away from our homes and offices. That is why; the concept of an insect that is beautiful is something that does not normally occur to us.

However, the fact is that our friends from the insect world also have a claim to beauty. If you do not believe us just think of butterflies. Nobody in their right mind would say that butterflies are not beautiful and it is also a fact that they do belong to the insect kingdom. If this is not enough to convince you, then we present to you the cute and undeniably visually appealing ladybird or ladybug. There is nothing icky about this cute little bug that is black beauty with adorable red dots. In fact, this insect has been the subject of many a tattoo design.



We think you are now convinced that insects can be beautiful, but if you are not, then look at the cute patterns on a yellow and black bee. We know that most people do not stop to admire the way the bee looks given that it tends to sting and that too painfully but there is no doubt that a bee is pretty from the visual point of view. In fact, there are some lovely colors that are only seen on some insects like the vivid green of a grasshopper.


While colors is one thing, nature has been really kind in the designing of the patterns and color combinations that many insects sport. Some insects are iridescent when it comes to the colors they sport. In the insect world colors and patterns they sport are more to do with camouflage and hiding. It also comes in handy when it is mating season. While these are some of the reasons for the beautiful colors and patterns that insects sport, for us it translates into visual enjoyment and inspiration.


Inspiration, you ask. Well, the colors and color combinations that insects sport are so beautiful that it has not only inspired artists to create some masterful pieces, it has also inspired some practical uses. One of them being creation of patterns and prints on clothing. In fact, even jewelry designs have been inspired by the colors, color combinations that insects display. There are many lines of jewelry that have borrowed from patterns and colors from insects to come up with lovely designs.

In fact, when you look at pictures of insects, you will soon see what we mean. Just imagine a pin or ring or a pair of earrings that are fashioned in the form of an insect. Then visualize the bits of color that the insect has replaced with the same colored stones. The eyes of the insect can also be replaced with a precious, semi-precious or artificial stone of the same color. Then you will really be able to visualize the beauty of the insect.


What is more the form of an insect can be really fascinating to look at, when you consider the functionality, movement and feats that are part of the insect and its body. You have to admit that there is a beauty to that too!
