Swedish photographer Magnus Muhr [1] has been playing with dead flies and creating a real buzz with his work all over the internet. Using the found bodies [2] of dead insects, Muhr arranges them on a blank piece of paper and draws them into everyday situations that make fun of humans. Flies hanging their wash, shaving their legs or mowing the lawn are just a few of the unusual scenarios you’ll find the winged creatures in.

This original idea sparked when Muhr was bored at a party, went for a walk, and found a dead fly [3] on the ground. When he got home he arranged a few dead insects [4] and started drawing them in humorous situations. He has already made about 25 different pictures and sells the photographs for 25 Euros. Weird, funny, and cute, its nice to know that no insects were hurt during the making of his art.
