Christopher Marleys graceful arrangements of jewel-like arthropods and delicate butterflies are stunning works of art; the iridescent colors of beetle shells and delicate hues of walking leaf wings are his pigments in a seemingly endless palette. The photographs of these arrangements present the bugs in their natural state: none of the images is digitally enhanced.
