The camera I have with me on our Round-the-World trip doesn't do macro very well, so my submission above isn't really recent ... more recent might be this attempt at a semi-nature macro (not for the contest). That's about as good as it gets with my current camera.

Another crab picture. Only a couple of years old, I hope that is recent enough.
