Macro photography is ultra-close-up photography of things that are very small.  Here are some macro photos of insects by Dutch photographer Leon Baas:

Telegraph has a gallery of more images, as well as descriptions and some comments from Baas.  “The shot of the flying ladybug [above] was a once in a lifetime photograph,” he says.  “I am very happy with it and do not think it will ever happen again.”
