From 2008 to 2018 Bambi traveled to various national parks and nature reserves throughout Vietnam to capture these pictures.

Lien said there are more than a million insect species in the world, but they are disappearing due to pollution and global warming. The exhibition aims to raise awareness of the need to preserve insects and their habitats.
