Take a close look at life on the road – insect life! High-resolution images and real specimens showcase the surprising beauty and diversity of often-unseen insects found along roadsides and powerlines, and in yards and neighborhoods. Learn about the pollinator conservation research program at the Florida Museum of Natural History’s Daniels Lab that aims to provide flowering habitats in these areas for some of our state’s most important, but underappreciated wildlife. Watch actual footage of insect activity in these environments and get a behind-the-scenes look at the imaging system used in the museum’s McGuire Center for Lepidoptera and Biodiversity to capture photographs of these tiny creatures.
