Astonishing Photographs of Weird Creatures by Daniel Stoupin

These seem to have come straight out of a sci-fi movie. These are some alien-looking animals that photographer Daniel Stoupin captured through microscope observation.

These creatures are so weird to us that we would never expect that such tiny animals would look this different. Some even look like meteors in outer space. For more of Daniel's amazing work, you may visit his portfolio at Behance, and there you may even check a video of these little guys in motion. I hope you enjoy these. Cheers! ;)
