Re: 9th January 20 - incredible creatures BRING YOUR CAMERA ALONG

Sounds fantastic, I'm looking out my macro lenses and a small, portable LED light as well.

Compact cameras can be excellent for macro shooting as well.

The entries are all in, something like 64 of them, and there are some very interesting and excellent images amongst them.
