This tiny bumble bee was about the size of the width of my little finger nail. Shot taken in Monmouth with a Canon EOS 500D and Canon Ultrasonic 28-90mm lens fitted with a reverse lens 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.
