Check out the thorax on that guy

I’m a real lightweight when it comes to insects (for example, I could never name my Flash rival after one ;-)), but they do inspire creative photography & more:

  • Buzz illustrates "The Intimate Bond Between Humans and Insects" via some amazing microscopic photography. See inside. [Via]
  • Student photographer Lawraa shares a shot of a praying mantis apparently listening to Snoop ("Throw your prehensile appendages in the ai-ir…") [Via]
  • Der Spiegel had a great gallery of shattered bugs, but now I’ve waited too long and it’s returning a 404 error.  Dang–maybe it’ll turn up elsewhere, as the images were worth seeing. The best the site will now give me is a pregnant cow scaring chubby cyclists.
  • Make any treat more mouthwatering with the help of sugar that looks like ants. [Via]
  • In a similar vein, an ad campaign uses ants–"the most credible ambassadors for sweetness*"– to show off sugar-free eats.
  • [For more bug life, see previous.]

*Snuggle the fabric softener bear was apparently unavailable

Lightroom $199 through Monday, $299 thereafter

Thanks to the folks at PhotoshopSupport.com for the reminder: the introductory pricing for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom ($199 US) is good through April 30 (this coming Monday), after which the price goes to the regular retail amount ($299).  If you’ve been thinking about purchasing Lightroom, now’s a good time to bust a move to the store. (You can kick the tires first via the downloable tryout version; just don’t wait too long to get the price break.)
