Aussie Macro Photos is the brainchild of Bridgette Gower, a Macro Photographer in Cairns, Queensland, Australia. Her images capture the beauty of the miniature lifeforms that will often go unnoticed in the undergrowth. In a brand-new enterprise not offered in Cairns previously, Bridgette is now running Guided Tours for those interested in seeing and or photographing some of the many of the lifeforms she has photographed in the Cairns Botanic Gardens. Her 600 plus hours spent in the gardens has allowed her to become aware of many host plants and locations for a variety of caterpillars, cocoons, moths and butterflies, leaf, tree and planthoppers, praying mantis, jumping spiders, tortoise beetles, damselflies and dragonflies.
During the Wet Season in Cairns (usually November to May), there are many beautiful and unusual fungi to be found and photographed.
