I was not able to use my D300 as it doesn't have macro. Used my point & shoot which shoots JPG's on macro. Needless to say I was lost without a RAW file! Lol!

you don't need a "macro" setting, just open your lens all the way to get the blur in the background, zoom in to get your close subject as big as you need, focus and click.

So even though the tittle says Macro Nature shot it can be just a nature shot? It doesn't have to be set on Macro?

Huh? What makes you think that? No, it needs to be a macro shot.

Using the macro setting is the easiest way to do it, but if you can take a macro shot manually then more power to you.

That's fine as is. I meant "macro" the term, not "macro setting"

Just looking for close up nature shots vs full landscapes.
