A cunning-looking jumping spider is captured in close-up, and a glistening assassin fly is speckled with water droplets.
The Indonesian bugs were photographed by 26-year-old paramedic Muhammad Roem.
He said: “I take some of my pictures in my studio with continuous light, and I take some on location using external flash.
“I like taking picture of insects in the dark forest, because there are amazing coloured species.
“My inspiration is from when I was young and I would see aliens on TV.”
The photos were taken on June 10 in Batam, in the Riau Islands Province of Indonesia.
A prickly-looking black dwarf honey bee and a fuzzy caterpillar can also be seen in stunning detail.
Mohammad, who lives in Batam, said: “After I take the pictures I feel amazing because I can see every detail in their eyes and body.”
