Macro

Challenge series hosted by kdf36. Challenges start on Wednesdays.
I've enjoyed the many different series out there utilizing the many different aspects of photography. Whether it be equipment, subject to the various generalities based, all have been a great experience. I hope to add to the experiences of members with this macro series. Keep in mind that I am far from an expert in macro photography. It is my goal to bring my fellow macro shooters out of the woodwork, as it were, and have them display for the community at large their best work in the macro department.

The first challenge will be in the insect world. To avoid any confusion, an insect is defined as "A small animal that has six legs and a body formed of three parts and that may have wings" (Merriam-Webster Dictionary). So, basically, if it has 6 legs, fire away!
