Challenge has finished
The idea is to get close as in Macro, or larger than life. This does not mean shooting an ant at 1/3 rd larger than life :-). All types of images are encouraged, flowers, insects, watches, pens. In short, just get in close on any item. You do not need a macro lens to shoot macro's. Remember to read the additional rules.

This little furry bee looks like a bumble bee, we do not have bumble bees in Africa, we have carpenter bees. They drill a perfect hole (normally in the beams) and lay their eggs there.
