Appreciate the small stuff: 21 macro shots that demand your attention.

The beauty of macro photography is this: Anything can be your subject. Whether it’s an object in nature or a colorful close-up of a woven fabric, a part of the human body captured from a short distance or a macro shot so obscure, the eye can’t quite make sense of what it’s seeing –Macro Beautyis all about getting up close and personal!
