I have come across quite a number of bugs and insects with huge antennae, and here is a selection of them. V.2 in particular amazed me, this little insect was always on the move, and his antennae never stopped twitching!

Evolution and its ways never ceases to astonish me. You'd think these antenna far too long to match with those tiny bodies, but must be a great asset instead to these bugs. Some wonderful captures with V1 & 2 being my favourites.

I really admire your photography skills. The compositions of these little creatures is wonderful, giving all that space to their antennae in such a pleasing way. My favourites are Vs 1 and 3, V3 for the composition, flower and the bug sitting at the top with the antennae falling towards the bottom, inspired shot.
