"Macro Art In Nature"

Explorations in the artistic world of macro photography.

“Dragonfly” – A Minimalistic View In Nature Photography.

Many times, I simply like to pull back and not worrying about getting close, … to show the main subject in the world in which it lives.
This shot is a even more minimalistic view than what I normally will get, as most of the time I would prefer to get at least a hint of detail or patterns in the background. This image contains virtually no background details.
