50 Mind-Blowing Examples of Macro Photography

Macro photography is a great way to look at parts of our world that we normally don’t pay attention to. In this sense, macro photographers are explorers that expand our worldview, just like travel photographers. Seeing flowers and insects in all their minute details, makes you realize that there’s always more than meets the eye. Part of the fun of macro photography is showing this hidden beauty.
