Top 10 Wired Reader Macro Photos

Wired magazine held a macro photography competition in April 2008 and let the readers to choose for the top 10.  For me, i like the 3rd one the most. Because i like blue color and i never think of that is a leaf. I think it’s very wonderful that the photographer can be taken so close!!! I think the water drop is really very beautiful……..
