yeah some of them have been a bit badly coloured,
These are pretty amazing though... I love that there is no scale, i always imagine a human standing next to them and only coming up to their knee...they become a thousand times more scary.

Its amazing that these may easily have evolved so that they are far huger than we are, and it looks like we are lucky that they didn't XD - I'm glad i can't see them tbh!

Amazing pics! Thanks for posting.
It's amazing how tiny (but complex) life can be with its' own tiny rules and laws. I bet for some huge and intelligent creatures out there we are also like flea and flies. Maybe planets think of us this way. :P
Also, these pictures are a great source of ispiration for artists, who draw different monsters and stuff. =)
