Just as I took this shot of a tiny fly he poked out his tongue.

Shot taken with a Canon EOS 450D and Canon Ultrasonic 28-90mm lens fitted with a lens reversal adapter.

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.
When I was 10 I was given a Brownie 110 for a school trip – not a single shot came out! But ….. the photography bug was born.
My interests are broad in both subject & style leading to a diverse portfolio – check out My Directory at to see just how varied my style & products are.
I hope you enjoy your visit, my sites have been created with you in mind.

    Awesome macro capture !!! ☺♥

  • Thanks Evita. The fly was hiding beneath leaves when I was clearing the garden. It took him a little while to warm up before he could fly away. Thanks for making it a fave
