Jennie says:
‘Macro photography is an ideal way to capture the otherworldly — with a macro lens and a little empathy you can enter the world of another creature. So when I saw the orange sunlight hitting the large, beautiful Birch Polypore on a fallen tree, it didn't take much imagination to see it as if it were the Moon. When an aphid came strolling along, the scene was set. Getting your macro lens out gives you a back stage pass to a mini magic world where mushrooms can be moons!’
