Peaceful dip by the pool: The serene moments captured by the photographer paint a captivating tale of the insects of Malaysia
Photographer Lee Pei Ling, from Malaysia, took these bright and colourful images in her back garden last year
Making a story: 'These photos were created based on a sketch from my imagination. I was trying to create surreal world for this little creatures, everything was prearranged.'
Reflections of a bug: Ling uses water, flowers, and grass as props as well as the natural lighting and colours of the environment
Ling said: 'I start with an idea and then I create the props in my garden. I test the lighting and wait for hours for an insect to show up.'

Are they fighting, or kissing? The detailed lives of the creatures are almost invisible to the giant humans wandering around
A long task for the right shot: 'Usually each image will take about four hours to perfect. If I haven't got it by then I tend to give up'
The series of images are incredible - but before that Ling 'was just having fun with my digital compact like most people do'
