    You’ve decided to post this image in the Closer and Closer Macro Photography Group pool. While this is a great image, it doesnt meet the requirements needed for submissions to the group.
    The images in the Closer and Closer Macro Photography Group pool must be a macro or at least very "close up". There needs to be an obvious intention to show a large portion of the subject in macro, close-up focus(DOF).

    Please see our Guidelines.

    It will be removed for you, but please remember to add only images to the pool that meet our submission requirements. Thank you.
