12 Incredibly Stunning Nature Macro Shot Wallpapers

Macro photography is an art form that gives us an unusually close look at a subject, and good macro shots can also make absolutely stunning wallpapers. That’s exactly what we’re sharing here, with twelve incredible macro shots of nature subjects generously shared from YJ Chua, a talented hobbyist photographer whose Mac setup we recently featured.

    “Incredibly” “stunning” – really? They’re nice pictures, but they’re not unbelievable and I’m not in rigor mortis.

    Why are these wallpapers not available in 1280 x 800 so I can use them on my MacBook Pro? They are all so beautiful that I wanted to download all 12 of them. Someone PLEASE tell me they’re available in 1280 x 800, because I want them.

      Hi Eireann,

      A wallpaper of a larger resolution actually works just as nice on a display of a lower resolution.

      For instance, my 21.5″ iMac with a 5120×2880 image looks perfect, because the aspect ratio of both the iMac and the wallpaper is 16:9.

      Even if the wallpaper isn’t of the same aspect ratio, as long as it’s a higher resolution than the display, it’ll still look good!

    Great wallpapers!

    Hi OS X Daily readers!

    First to OS X Daily, thanks for featuring my shots!

    Second, I admit that I didn’t post process my images at all. If any of them needs to be post processed, please let me know and I’ll get it done.

    I have already resized Peekaboo to 5120×2880 (16:9 format, retina-fied 2560×1440). It’s available for download here: http://1drv.ms/1puEXmu
