Since Valentine's Day is coming, why not have a Love related macro contest? For this contest, you will have to take a macro photograph or a closeup of something that you love. Anyone, or anything. 

In other words, you can show off your love for a dessert, your bed (like me), your significant other, water drops, insects..basically anything, as long as it is a macro photograph or a closeup. 

RULES (please read carefully)

:squee-love: - PLZ by a-kid-at-heart The photograph has to be at least 1280 pixels wide (It is the “Display options” / “Size: 1280 pixels wide” or “Size: 1600 pixels wide” widget when you submit your photograph, underneath the “Contains Mature Content?”).
