    This was taken today with my A95 on macro mode.

    I have been messing about with macro since knowing the theme for this month and have taken a few shots but to be honest i'm struggling to get the interpretation of this theme right (for me)

    Decided in the end to take a picture of a Venus Fly Trap that we have in our kitchen. I had the idea after looking round for stuff to shoot and seeing a few dead flies in the plant, the thought is that it may be a small world but there are big threats to everything, no matter how small or big.

    I'm quite pleased with the outcome of the shot, the entry is a crop of a section of another photo. I have started to realise that you can take the pictures on maximum resolution, then crop your selection out and retain a good level of detail :suicide:

    Anyway, here is the entry, comments as always appreciated.

    There are some great colours there Steve and an interesting subject. Just for me perhaps the crop is a little too tight. It would work better I think if you hadn't cropped half-way on the out of focus leaves...anyway, still a great shot :thumbsup:
