OUR TINY NEIGHBORS
A COLLECTION OF INSECTS AND ARTHROPODS FROM FRANCE AND CANADA

We often miss the opportunity to observe the amazing details, intricate patterns and fascinating anatomy of bugs as they are very small and move quite fast. I have started taking pictures of the most common species surrounding me some years ago, as I was quite frustrated to miss these beautiful details, and it soon became a passion. It also helped me overcome my arachnophobia: knowledge is the key to make fear go away.
