This bejeweled creature is actually a fly, covered in tiny droplets of dew that gathered on his body while he slept through the early morning hours. It's from a series of shimmering insect photographs taken in the Polish forest.
To take photos like these, amateur photographer Miroslaw Swietek goes out into the forest near his village around 3 AM with a flashlight and camera, looking for insects to shoot. Insects go into a sleep-like state where they barely move for a few hours a night, and that's how dew collects on their bodies. Swietek says he loves photographing insects and lizards.
