Macro Photography "on the cheap" !

Weather still grim - so staying in for now ... however ...

I've got a new toy - a "lens reversing ring" - a good quality macro lens can cost hundreds - the reversing ring cost £9. Basically you screw the ring to the camera, and then attach your lens to it - IN REVERSE !!  Naturally you lose all aperture control and autofocus etc (camera can't communicate with lens), so it's into manual mode we go - and here's a first stab at macro photography ...

Cute eh what ??  Reckon it would be nice to try this outside with small insects, flowers etc - just need some weather for it !!
