Life on Moss
Think insect macro photography and you’d be thinking of the outdoors.
But Belgian photographer Boris Godfroid took a different approach for his Life on Moss still photographs and video.
He brought the outdoors inside with a realistic mock up using actual moss and other plant life on a base.
By doing so, he could control lighting and composition while keeping his tiny subjects happy.
The result is an amazing collection of photographs which show off the insects in exquisite detail right down to their compound eyes and pollen dustings.
