You probably don't want to know how they got puppies and kittens to remain perfectly still for the long exposure times required for primitive film plates.

Photographer dude found a loophole:

Methods of stilling insects that involve...chemically spraying...or killing them for the purposes of taking an image are not permitted in submitted images for the awards.

Apparently, since stilling insects by placing them near a source of the same chemical used in killing jars isn't technically spraying them, he'll get away with it.

You have to move from bug powder to Mugwamp jism for full effect,

Normal practice is to kill them but drugging them is unethical?

I didn't choose buglife. Buglife chose me.

So this guy sexually assaults bugs, and then screws them over on the royalties from pictures of them in compromising photos? There needs to be a law. A You Can't Rape Bugs Law.  We'll call it 'Buzzy's Law' to remember the courage of one particular mosquito victim.

What's bugging the people criticizing him, isn't it better to leave them alive?

Oh for the.... Is there any actual indication he's actually harming them at all?  Just to point out, beekeepers "drug" their bees all the time...

Amateur. In honors Bio in highschool I killed all my fruit flies AND got High as a kite leaving whatever chemicals open when I was supposed to just give em a nap and count sepia eyes for a genetics course.

RIP fruit flies you made it 3 generations and now I wish to be able to kill each and everyone of you at will like I was able to do in highschool.

Meanwhile most people blithely kill every spider, moth, or beetle they find in their house.

You think that's bad, but did you know that the Government forcibly sterilizes countless bugs every year by exposing them to radiation against their will?

It would have to be a "You Should Not Rape Bugs" law.  I can think of some dudes that definitely exhibit all the typical behavior of someone with a dick small enough they certainly COULD
