Collision Course

We’ve all seen macro photographs of insects before, but never quite like this. German science photographer Volker Steger, created a series of photographs of insects that crashed into his car. He collected the dead bugs from the hood of his car and ran them under a scanning electron microscope. Steger describes his personal methods for capturing these amazing images: “The speed is important. The right speed is about 70km/h (43 mph). Flies that get hit by a car at that speed look like fallen angels in the electron microscope.”
