      stunning photograph
      Was this taken with a Macro lens
      If so do you think they are worth having

      It wouldn't have been possible to get this shot without a macro lens - in this instance a Canon 100mm prime, the same as for the atlas moth image - so if it's the sort of photography you're interested in the investment is definitely worthwhile.

      The small details from zoos are largely missing from the ZooChat galleries, a shame as many of them deserve a closer look.

      and it reveals so much!
      The butterflies actually embracing the flower!
      And that plant has scale insects!

      Will now be saving to invest in a macro lens for my Nikon
      The detail on this image is facinating and makes the image extremely interesting
