The two photohunter themes: Plant and A Close Up, fit together very easily.
My first two choices are close-ups of my hostas.
The last plant close-up is of my butterfly weeds. These are all summer shots from different years. The first and last shots are macros as well as close-ups. I don't think I used a macro lens setting for the middle shot. I looked it up and macros are also close-ups although close-ups aren't always macros. I wouldn't want to see a macro of my face because it would show every wrinkle but a close-up might miss some of my wrinkles.
