Artist Creates Beautifully Detailed Insects Out Of Freshly Cut Flowers

I have to be honest, I really don't like any kind of insect. That's right, I don't even like ladybugs all that much, despite how beautiful their color and pattern is! Same with butterflies. I don't know — bugs are just so unpredictable, and they don't leave people alone.

However, there are some insects I could look at all day long, and they're completely made out of fresh flowers.

Raku Inoue is a Canadian-based artist who creatively uses the elements of nature to craft into insects.

When looking at each insect, it's as if each part of the flower has been perfectly placed, maybe adjusted a few times to get it just right.
