Here is a neat insect website. The specialty here is hard-to-come-by shots of insects flying. It is in German, but since it is mostly pictures, you can navigate with little trouble. However, it is worth switching to English (English flag at the top of the column at the left) to read about the years of work that the photographer has put into taking these pictures. I think the Coleoptera pictures are particularly neat (take a look at the Pyrochroidae section); the sight of an ungainly beetle in flight almost makes it a new creature.
