People are often accused of anthropomorphizing non-human creatures when their actions “seem” to be similar to human activities, but is it really inconceivable that insects might think and feel the same things we do? What might a snail think when it sees its reflection in a bubble? Do dragonflies revel in the beauty of summer sunsets the way that we do?

Mishchenko’s photos inspire us to pause and consider the kinship we share with these little beauties, and perhaps with kinship lies greater understanding, respect, and even stronger conservation efforts.
