Igor Siwanowicz Macro Photographs Of Colorful Caterpillars That Look Like Aliens

Physicists wonder if there are other universes, but biologists have already found them. Just look through a microscope and there you are, in a different world of life. Igor Siwanowicz, a neurobiologist at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Farm Research Campus in Virginia visits often. The scientist and photographer has made a name for himself documenting the phenomenal range of shapes, colors, and structures of creatures in the natural world. His many images of unique caterpillars include wild variations like feathery blue spikes, curling burnt-orange horns, and long black whiskers. ‘You need creative outlets, especially photography, where the magic happens in a split second where you press the shutter. You’re not dwelling in the past, or thinking about the future. You’re in the moment.’ – Igor Siwanowicz
