No matter where one lives, you are surrounded by the small and extraordinary – insects, spiders, flowers. This is a wild world in every sense but easily overlooked because the inhabitants, like most life-forms on Earth, are very small. Macro Photography allows you can peer into this world, witness and document incredible species with behavior that most people never see. At Learn Macro, we share nature & macro photography ramblings from across the Atlantic. —Clay Bolt (Montana, USA) and Paul Harcourt Davies (Orvieto, Italy).

As I discovered the joys of the central Italian hills and mountains, the one thing that impressed me, above all else, was not the number of rare species (however impressive when it came to wild orchids) but the wealth of the displays.
