Amazing Macro Photos

Macro photography refers to close-up photography; the classical definition that the image projected on the "film plane" (i.e film or a digital sensor) is the same size as the subject. On 35 mm film (for example), the lens must have the ability to focus on an area at least as small as 24×36 mm, as this is the size of the image on the film. This is known as "life-size magnification" or simply 1:1.

Check out these rad macro photos of insects from Lord V. on Flickr.com. Some of them are kinda scary, like the wasp ones.
