Macro Photography: Remarkable Bits of Life We Overlook

The joy of being a photographer is being able to capture life in a single image. Our eyes skim very briefly on facets of life but sometimes we fail to notice the intricacies that make the wonders of this world so remarkable. Simple things like looking at a bee settle onto a flower or looking at the rainbow spectrum in an insect’s eye, or even taking just a closer look at the human eye: the window to the soul. We walk around, not taking a moment to just enjoy this little bits of life.

Here we have collected a number of macro shots that hope to inspire and remind us of the little things that can just make you feel in awe. Have a great weekend ahead :-)
