A macro lens gives us eyes to see things more as they really are. Whether it be a snowflake, or butterflies, or any number of things that have such intricate and marvelous detail that we can't see with the naked eye. A macro lens opens up the world to us in ways many have never seen it before. I made an early morning trip on this Easter morning to the Butterfly House. For 2 1/2 hours I got lost there amidst the butterflies.
