Macro One to One Half Day

Wow! What a way to spend three hours, it passed so quickly. With the tips and advice I was given, and the knowledge and professionalism of the guide (Sorry, I can't recall the name), I managed to photograph some stunning creatures, with amazing detail which has always eluded me. I'm so pleased with the photos I've taken. Thank you, looking forward to booking another soon.
