Bugs and insects aren’t normally the types of things we celebrate for their beauty.

Sure, a close up may reveal how intricate and amazing these animals are. But let’s be honest, no one is trying to get that close to any creepy crawlies.

In fact, people are more likely to unleash their pets on a spider than they are to get anywhere near it themselves.

However, one artist reimagined the potential of insects and decided to embrace their beauty using a medium that is both expected and surprising — flowers.

Raku Inoue, who was born in Japan and now lives in Montreal is responsible for these beautiful creations, and for his brand and vision, Reikan Apparel.

The companies focus is to, “promote creativity and offer inspiration to those who seek them.”

It is very clear by the beauty and delicacy of these flower insects that Raku means what he says:
