Renderosity Gallery of the Week - "Insects"
March 15, 2009 12:52 pm
Whether your focus is Photography, 2D, 3D, or submitting written works to the Writers Gallery, there's no better inspiration than seeing what other fellow artists are doing. A place to see what you may have been missing, or to meet new favorite artists, the Renderosity Gallery of the Week should be your weekly destination for a quick peek at what's happening elsewhere in the galleries.
Between topic/software gallery selections, we highlight works by "genre" in the Gallery of the Week. With Spring weather starting to hit many of us here in the US, the insects are arriving to meet us...some beautiful, and some just downright creepy. So, let's take a look at the works members are posting in the "Insects" genre. Not to worry, though...next week, we will showcase "Flowers/Plants" :)
From Wikipedia: "Insects (Class Insecta) are the biggest class of arthropods and the only ones with wings. They are the most diverse group of animals on the planet. They are most diverse at the equator and their diversity declines toward the poles. With over a million described species—more than half of all known living organisms—with estimates of undescribed species as high as 30 million, thus potentially representing over 90% of the differing life forms on the planet."

I found this by accident.. I wasn't aware of the fact that you guys did a gallery of the week. Cool idea ! :) I don't know what it is about insects, perhaps it's because they are so different from the larger and more noticeable animal species. They are also very diverse and often have very interesting lifestyles as well. Also, it's somewhat of a triumph to finally capture that Dragonfly you were after for the last half an hour. That's what makes it beat landscapes and people shots in my opinion; the hunt. P.S. You'll understand I have to point out that you selected have two non-insect arthropods here ;)
