Gallery: Tiny creatures as you’ve never seen before

Photographers Stanley and Kaisa Breeden have focused their lenses on some very small forms of life. The pair are masters of ‘focal stacking’ photography, in which they merge images to create an otherwise unachievable depth-of-field. Here, they’ve used their skills to bring out some of nature’s smallest details, from the amazingly delicate textures of moth wings to the curled-up form of a sleeping wasp. All these images can be found in their book, Small Wonders: A close look at nature’s miniatures.
