November's photo contest pick of the day

Categories: Community

Today's photo of the day comes to us from Flickr. Gpereir4 has taken a beautiful photo that we feel really captures what's wonderful about macro photography.


Here's what one of our photo editors, Evan Mitsui thinks of the unique picture.

"Great macro shot of a yellowjacket! Well executed with the shallow depth of field drawing the viewer's gaze to the little guy's head, er, mandible area.

Right where you want it! Love the way the rest of the body disappears into the background with just enough detail left so that we know what we're looking at. Those mouth parts look menacing too. Bringing details to life that are normally  just too small for us humans to notice is a big part of what I like about macro photography," he offers.

There are more tips on macro photography in our Nov. 3 pick of the day post.
