isitors to the Fernbank Museum of Natural
History in Atlanta have a chance to get an
up-close view of giant insects and relics from the
ancient Mayan civilization until early May.
The Microsculpture exhibit-set in
WildWoods, Fernbank's 10-acre outdoor
education area-brings the world of insects
to a new dimension. Large-format, high-magnification
portraits by British photographer Levon Biss showcase an
Amazonian scarab, an orchid cuckoo bee, a Chinese tortoise
beetle and other colorful insects. These photos represent some
of the more than 5 million specimens at the Oxford University
Museum of Natural History in Oxford, England.
" These amazingly detailed and colorful photographs
reveal the intricate shapes and colors of these insects, " says Tyler
Thornton, public relations specialist with Fernbank. " Contrast
this microcosm of nature with Maya: Hidden Worlds Revealed
