I like 10 a lot. Evil looking but intriguing at the same time. wabi sabi. Beauty in imperfection.

Did that orchid grow on your place? We have a lot of tiny orchids native here and they're fascinating if you take close-up pictures of them, since they're too small to see easily on the ground.

Totally missed the notifications for this..I think I'd have actually had one or two for it
Great pics!
So did I! I love macro photography.
Went with 'close up' as I was not sure how many people owned a macro(micro) lens. We can always have a Macro contest in the future if enough interest is showed ;-)

Ga Prime - That is no tadpole :p

Closeup and macro are not the same thing.
Close up just means the lens is physically close to the subject of the photo. Zoomed images are a form of closeup, but aren't really a 'closeup' as the lens is still quite distant from the subject.
Macro can be a closeup for sure (and usually is) but magnification is always involved in macro photography while magnification is not necessary in closeup shots.
