Macro photography is such a amazing, somewhat oxymoronic technique — allowing photographers to capture life's small things in big ways. For example, in today's featured photo of the week from Craftsy member heikehst, the use of macro photography captured one of nature's most delicate, elusive and beautiful little creatures with substantial focus and detail. It makes this tiny butterfly seem larger than life.

Anyone who ever chased a butterfly as a child can appreciate how tricky this shot probably was to get. These tiny insects seem to flutter quickly away at even the gentlest of breezes. Nevertheless, heikehst manage to snag an image of this brightly colored bug with amazing focus and frame.
