Use the Macro Setting
The macro setting transforms ordinary objects into the extraordinary. This feature allows you to get extra close to the subjects of your photos—sometimes revealing even more than you can see with the naked eye. Look for the button on your digital camera with the flower next to it, and try it out.
About the photo: At Congo's Lefini Faunal Reserve in February 2000, photographer Michael Nichols took this shot of a woman holding the hand of a baby lowland gorilla.
