There is natural beauty all around us in the world, countless wonders that we can take in. Linden Gledhill is a scientist that, in his spare time, acts as a photographer. With his knowledge and equipment, he is able to capture some of the most stunning photographs you’ll ever see. His work is bright and brilliant, but you’d never be able to guess what his subjects are at first glance.

This is a Salamis Parhassus…

And this a Vanessa atalanta…

The flashy Rhetus dyson…

And don’t forget the Graphium weiskeiis.

The Papilio blumei pattern is gorgeous.

As well as the Cithaerias pireta aurorina.

This is Cithaerias pireta aurorina.

As is this.

The Graphium sarpedon is full of tranquil beauty…

And the Chrysiridia Rhipheus is exciting.

Absolutely electric.

The Comet variety is cool.

No one can forget the Troides hypolitus.

Nope, those aren’t paintings or viruses or industrial materials. They’re just macro images of butterflies and moths. Natural beauties.

As a biochemist, Linden collected specimens of rare and beautiful butterflies from a company called Butterflies and Things. He then used a microscope and some high powered lights to create the visually stunning photographs you saw above. It’s hard to believe that the wings of a butterfly are so incredibly colorful and iridescent on a microscopic level.
