Not everyone enjoys spiders, snakes, and other critters. However, you might change your mind after you see these photographs taken by Pavan Tavrekere.

Pavan is a photographer from India, and he specializes in capturing tiny creatures with his camera. He is inspired by nature and does most of his photographs outdoors, trying to find new specimens to add to his photo collection. Pavan told Bored Panda: "I started shooting these tiny critters over 8 years ago when I had a Sony Xperia phone, and that became a passion. It's amazing to see tiny creatures up close, to observe their lives and behavior. Now, I feel unhappy if I don't go outdoors and shoot something for over a week. I'm fascinated by the number of creatures that exist! I've shot several kinds of insects, but now and then I still find something new that I never would've seen at all."

What do you think of his photographs? Are you afraid of spiders? If yes, did these photographs help you see their cute side? Share with us in the comments!

Is this what they all look like when they're newly "hatched"?
