Vibrant Macro Photographs of Butterfly Wings

Butterflies are arguably one of the most romanticized creatures, and it’s not only their elegant shape and gorgeous colored patterns that electrify our imagination. Because of their visual appeal, butterflies have become an important pattern in art and holds different symbolic meanings and superstitions in multiple countries. In Japan, for example, they are thought to be a personification of a human’s soul!

There are about 15 000 and 20 000 butterfly species worldwide. As if their different patterns and colors weren’t beautiful enough as they are, with the help of professional macro photographs, we have a chance to take a closer look at the butterflies wings. Looks like their beauty is not only skin-deep!
