Mesmerising pictures show a host of insects surrounded by tiny droplets of rain after an early morning shower.

The creatures and surrounding flowers are perfectly reflected by the water which appears like crystal balls in this series of close-up images.

Photographer Alberto Ghizzi Panizza, 44, was up at dawn to catch an early burst of rainfall in a forest near the stunning Po river in Italy.

In the images, rain droplets are scattered across the insects as they bathe in the morning light.

Mr Panizza used macro photography, a technique which allows a photographer to take extremely close-up photographs of their subjects.

This way, he can capture the most intricate details in his images – even from the tiniest insect.
