Chinese Ground Beetle

The intense colours of this beetle are produced not by pigments but by the interaction of light between separate layers of chitin. These layers can even be preserved in fossils, the colours still present after millions of years.  Taken from the Microsculpture project by Levon Biss, this beautiful portrait of a Chinese Ground Beetle was created from over 8,000 individual photographs using a bespoke camera system and microscope objectives.
