It's May, and throughout most of the Northern hemisphere, Spring is in full bloom. With this in mind, intrepid FPZ member DamnRedneck has organized the the FPZ Marvelous May Macro/CF Shoot Out!
Running throughout the month of May, this shootout encourages all members to show off their best macro/close-focus work. You don't necessarily need a high end macro lens to participate, focusing at your lens' minimum focus distance should be enough. Even a kit lens focuses surprisingly close.
From the contest description:

...Friendly Photo Zone was born! Hard to believe it's already been a whole year. It was back on May 11th, 2010 that FPZ opened its doors and invited all photographers to our fledgling community. And what a great year it's been!
But the best is yet to come, and we look forward to growing together, gathering new members and helping photographers achieve their goals.
Happy Birthday FPZ!
