Don't know exactly if this considered a "macro" or not (your opinion welcomed) but I love the overall effect of creature in its environment. This was a sunny day shot highlighting flower edges and wings. Note incredible transparency of wings, by the way.

So does that mean that all those that use the MP-E 65 aren't shooting macro ;)

MPE65 cant shoot less than 1:1 so all its output is macro.

Another definition of macro is that if you printed an image on 6x4 and the subject appears on the photo as at least its actual size then its a macro.

Exactly so it may not be 1:1 it may be 1:2 1:3 etc. :)

Ah, i'm with you now - I think Omri Alon meant macro is at least 1:1

Wonderful shot, like the colours and lighting very much. Might not be strictly macro by definition, but who cares!!!
