Now the bugs are his passion.

Photographer Mofid Abu Shalva from Saudi Arabia, became famous because of his amazing macro photos of insects, which are regularly published in popular publications and for which he has received one international award.

But to his favorite work, a photographer came by chance. Moved from childhood to be terrified of flying insects, and using a photo I decided to face my fears. A psychological technique not only gave him a hobby, and then work, but also radically changed his attitude to the world of insects.

Salva is not just taking pictures of their tiny models, but also examines information about them. Special love a photographer has for bugs. He studied scarab beetles and their impact on Egyptian life and culture. On this subject Shalva even wrote a few articles that complements your photos.
