One of my favorite aspects of macro photography is its ability to capture and preserve the fleeting details that enliven the world around us: a tiny insect on a blade of grass, a group of gleaming water droplets on a leaf, a row of ripples in the sand, a curtain of icicles on moss, a bright flower in bloom. In the spring, I relish those stolen moments when I can snap my macro lens onto my camera and immerse myself in the colorful and melodious world of nature.
