Macro Without Bugs or Flowers IV · Advanced Editing
Take a macro shot (or at least an extreme close-up) of something that is not a bug or flower. For the purpose of this challenge, "bug" refers to any insect, arachnid, worm, larvae, etc. that would be classified in the arthropoda phylum.

Is there so much confusion about what constitute bugs? :D

Here are the earlier ones:
Macro Without Bugs or Flowers
Macro Without Bugs or Flowers II
Macro Without Bugs or Flowers III

I love Macros, but am not very good at them. Would love to see what this challenge produces...

Not really, but there are some shoehornable creepy crawlies that might be entered if it was defined as "insects".

I'm thinking if you want to score high, do some sort of water drop.

edit: i guess not, not sure what i was thinking about...

I totally have an idea for this.. and looking at the top photos from the last challenges, no one's done it which is a plus (unless they're on the bottom in which case maybe it's not such a good idea to try, lol).

Hopefully I can scrape something together!

i think they ought to add, "...without amphibians, cats, water drops, bubbles...." ;-)

maybe a better breakdown would be "Macro: Animate" and "Macro: Inanimate"

regardless, should be fun ... i got my first DPC 6+ score in Macro Without Bugs or Flowers III (conch)

Thank you. Seeing past Challenges like this always helps. Not my scores, just the ideas. lol !

so... not that i don't have any ideas for non-bug, non-flower macro, but would some non-flower part of a plant (like the fruit) still be considered DNMC?
