For Christmas, I received a macro lens. Rarely has the outdoors excited me more. Each batch of images has details not seen while photographing. Spider webs, mold spores, fine hairs, etc.
If you are at all interested in macro photography, I seriously recommend saving for/purchasing a macro lens. It makes all the difference. Trust me.
All of these images were taken outside close to home.
Most new discoveries are suddenly-seen things that were always there. Susanne K. Langer
