The Magnified World of Macro Photography

Macro photography is all about taking magnified shots of intricate details that can't be seen with naked eyes. It enables you to illustrate nature in a way that is not known to the world. Exploring the world of miniature objects with a macro lens is a special and exciting area of photography, and once you start, you will quickly become addicted. The world of macro photography holds many delights and is an area that cannot be appreciated with the human eye.

Camponotus gigas or giant forest ant is one of the largest species of ant in the world. It grows 2-3 cm in length and I have not seen any ant close to this size.
