I am not too sure about this. So what is the difference between macro and closeup? Maybe someone can help.

my 2 cents:

Close-up = the subject can be large...but you go close to it. eg. face of lion, shine animals...

macro = small subject, bee...flowers...

There are no definite line between these two. A close-up can be a macro photo, vice versa. It depends on how you want to explain it.

Here's the link to dpreview explaingin about Macro.

Technically a Macro lens is one that is capable to creating an image on film that is at least as large as the actual object. That is, if you photograph something that is 1cm across for example, the image on the film has to be at least 1 cm across to qualify as a macro shot.
