The stuff that nightmares are made of by 

Shot of a May Bug lying on its back, taken with a Canon EOS D30 and Canon 38-76mm lens fitted with a generic 12x macro lens

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.

    what is it? looks scary! lol

  • It’s a May Bug’s claw. It’s so tiny that focusing on the claw blurs everything else – it does look scarey doesn’t it?

    Amazing! Love this! I desperately need a macro lens!

  • I often use a lens reversal adapter and get really good results. Take a look at this group if you’re interested :)
