Volunteer David Forsyth began to photograph the insects in the Pollinator Garden at the McLane Center in Concord in July of 2020. He quickly discovered how fascinating they were – “they vary remarkably in their physical forms, color patterns and behavior.” He thought they were much more interesting than the immobile plants he was originally planning to photograph! By the end of September he had photographed 120 insect species, learning to identify them in the process. His photos are amazing and provide a valuable catalogue of the pollinators for which the garden was designed.
