Beatiful Pictures of Horrific Bug Death

by Dan Stout

Over at Scientific American, Alex Wild has compiled a list of some of the most disturbing ways for insects to shuffle off this mortal coil, and accompanied it with his own collection of wonderful insect macro photography. I haven't seen his work before, but I'll definitely keep an eye out for more after seeing these pieces.

Especially exciting for me was the photos showing the handiwork of controlling parasites, which is always a personal point of interest. 

One sample is below, the rest of the article and photos can be found here.
