Wikimedia Commons (or simply Commons), Wikipedia’s media repository, is full of beautiful shots of insects. Each day, photo enthusiasts from countries around the globe upload their wildlife pictures to Commons in order to illustrate Wikipedia’s articles. They all share the vision of “A world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge”. And every picture that is getting uploaded to Commons moves us a small step closer to this vision. Below you’ll find some of the most beautiful photos of insects that have been published under a Creative Commons license which makes them freely available to people around the world.
