Insect Wings Made to Look Like Flowers by Seb Janiak

Photos of insect wings manipulated to look like blooming flowers by Paris-based fine art photographer Seb Janiak. This series entitled Mimesis, a Greek word meaning imitation, was created without any special effects or retouching using only techniques from analog photography, namely superimposition and photomontage.

Mimicry is a survival technique developed by animals during the course of their evolution and involves various morphological, physiological, ecological and ethological aspects. The term also covers all types of camouflage used by species to ensure concealment from predators and avoid being seen by humans.
