I found some images of Lucas Carroll while leafing through my latest issue of The Drake weeks ago and was absolutely blown away by this guy’s tying and photography skills. Mostly the later… Not that he’s not a good tier, but if any of you have ever tried to shoot macro shots of size 30 bugs you know it’s nearly impossible. To have the images turn out as gorgeous as this is some feat.

What’s cooler, is that Lucas took the time to do the taxonomy of the bugs in each shot, and how the photograph was finished on his fickr set. Take some time with the images, learn a little and enjoy the slide show.
