insect entomology 5 insect entomology 6 insect entomology 7Entomology is the scientific study of insects. With over 1.3 million described species, the field is overwhelmingly complex. Insects represent over 2/3 of all known organisms and play a vital role in our ecosystem – they pollinate flowers, reintroduce nutrients into the soil, make honey, beeswax, silk, and other useful products. Needless to say, our Earth would be a far more inhospitable place without them.

Paula Duță, an illustrator and interior designer from Romania, captures the incredible diversity of insects in her artwork. I really appreciate the level of detail she puts into each of her drawings. They truly belong in a science textbook.

I don’t personally know much about Paula, but on her facebook page, she states, “I just love to draw.” Keep on keepin’ on Paula.
