Skilled photographers in the Thompson-Okanagan region are providing a very close up look at local flora and fauna and some of these images are breathtaking.

Little crumbs of pollen on fuzzy bees, the tiniest hairs on a flower stamen, rain drops and dragonfly wings can be seen in a whole different way.

Macro photography is photographing subjects at high magnifications that can involve using special macro lenses.

A true macro photo creates an image on the camera sensor that is the same size as the scene in real life, according to Digital Photography School, but the term macro photography also includes general close-up images.

While macro photography includes a wide range of subjects, many photographers focus on the natural world.

Using a camera with a close-focussing accessory can reveal the textures and colours not easily seen by the naked eye. 

If you have macro images you want to share, send them to news@infonews.ca.
