This incredible instagram artist named Raku Inoue creates pictures of animals, plants, and insects out of flower petals and it’s breathtaking.
The artist gained a lot of inspiration from reading National Geographic, so it makes sense that some of his most amazing flower-petal creations are recreations of images that he’s seen in the NatGeo magazines he obsessed over as a kid.
A lot of the images that are posted to his instagram have a clear message and a clear purpose — to encourage people to pay attention to the environment and do what it takes to save animals from the dangers of polluting the Earth with oil and plastic, and trash in general.
I’m not a fan of insects by any stretch, but when I see these beetles and butterflies created out of flower petals I can’t help but feel like maybe there is some beauty in insects? I mean, I would never want to “experience” this beauty up close, but I think it’s definitely something that I could appreciate from a safe distance.
Alpaca & Parrot
I have to be honest, the parrot on the right really reminds me of the ViewSync monitors I used to have for my computers as a kids. Also the test page that came out of every color printer I owned. But man does this picture look incredible.
