Since March 2020 I have posted a weekly Macro Monday blog
Here are some of the highlights:
- The wasp that made Darwin doubt God
- The blood bee’s cuckoo spree
- Back to chalk
- Bees bring life to a dying lawn
- Wildlife under lockdown
I started the blog to find some distraction from the UK lockdown caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. It has been a massive relief and I really enjoy writing these posts.
I bought my first macro lens in 2014 and since then macro has become the core focus of the photos I take. I have learned huge amounts about nature through seeing new species and witnessing amazing animal behaviour.
Macro has shown me that unique images can be captured anywhere, in any space, without having to travel hundreds or thousands of miles in search of a photographic experience.
My main focus is on insects, spiders, plants and fungi.
Below are a selection of my favourite photos:
