Color Inspiration in Nature: Insects Infused with a Rainbow of Hues

Color Inspiration in Nature: Insects Infused with a Rainbow of Hues


Let's face it. When it comes to insects, most people don't like being "bugged" one bit! And although these critters often offer positive benefits, many also come with negative attributes as well, such as biting, buzzing, stinging, and in some cases, stinking! But as we always like to seek out the positives, we've gathered below some of the most beautiful-colored bugs of the world, and presented the color palettes they've inspired also. Feel free to add on your favorite insect ideas, photos, and palette creations in the comment section as well. We always love Community input, and inspiration!
