This series entitled Mimesis, a Greek word meaning imitation, was created by Paris-based fine art photographer Seb Janiak.
By using the photography techniques of superimposition and photomontage (without digital manipulation) Janiak manipulated photos of insect wings to look like blooming flowers.

Eat or be eaten! This fundamental law of nature has seen animals develop a diverse range of survival techniques during the course of their evolution, one of which is mimesis. For specialists, the term mimicry has a narrow definition that is limited to a resemblance of two zoologically distant organisms, which sees one (the mimic) imitate the other (the model). However, the term can also cover all types of camouflage used by species to ensure concealment from predators and avoid being seen by humans too.
