Micronaut is proud to present Exquisite Castaways, a long-term project devoted to the stunning diversity of nature in general - and the world's most exciting insect eggs in special.
Fascinated by their phenomenal beauty and variety Martin Oeggerli has collected and photographed eggs of more than 30 different butterfly species over the last three years. A hand-picked selection of his works has now been published by National Geographic, in the September 2010 issue.
