How far away from whatever you are taking a picture of, do you feel most comfortable?

I feel pretty comfortable taking a picture of a ladybird from about 10-15 cm away. Not so much if it was a tiger...

I suppose for every subject one might have a preferred shooting distance. For portraiture it might be about 2.5-3 meters, for the Moon it might be about 350,000 km when it is the closest to Earth.

Does the answer to that question factor in to determining what lens you normally turn to?
