:bulletyellow:You need to fave this journal!
:bulletyellow:"Macro in nature" can be a closeup of a flower, of drops in nature, etc. But NATURE and CLOSEUP has to be involved in it.
:bulletyellow:You need to send your submission to either dragonfly-oli or AljoschaThielen in a note, telling us it is for our contest. You will be added to a folder with other submissions. If you are not added to this specific folder, just note us.
