Can ‘dew’ believe it: Stunning pictures of sleeping insects covered in water droplets by physiotherapist Miroslaw Swietek

DailyMail has an amazing page of extreme close-up insects covered in water droplets; a sight many of us could not appreciate, until now:

Glistening in the early morning, these insects look like creatures from another planet as dew gathers on their sleeping bodies.

Droplets of water bead on the head of this blue dragonfly as it slumbers on a leaf.

Mr Swietek gets up at 3am to capture the insects while they are less active in a forest near his home.

Another dragonfly enjoys an early morning wash. Mr Swietek only took up photography two and a half years ago.

The insects appear to be completely drenched in water as they rest while the sun is down.

This month looks like it has been encrusted in diamonds as it rests on a twig.
