Pollination is an environmental issue that concerns me for many reasons. One reason being, pollination allows flowers to reproduce and, brings us fruits and vegetables. However the use of pesticides and GMOs have had a negative impact on the number of pollinators who perform this extremely valuable ecosystem service. Aside from the importance of pollinators, I have a fascination with pollinating insects. This is why I attempt to capture the beauty of insects, which I value so dearly.
