Macro photography by Joseph Ferraro

A closer look at some of the inhabitants of our pollinator garden at the Belle Isle Nature Center.

Joseph is a macro photographer walking the naturalist’s path, documenting native pollinators and other invertebrates with an up close and personal perspective. “I approach my subjects akin to a portrait photographer. Using the knowledge I’ve obtained while observing insects, I look for their individual personalities, their habits, the right angle and the perfect moment to showcase them in their own environment.”
