I haven't seen this theme in the list, sorry if I missed it.
I sometimes take photos of small details of the animals I see, which give quite interesting photos :

you can have for example an eye :
ellie,
lion, rhino

My daughters call these photos FREAKIES but I enjoy the freakiness of the animal textures. I'm sure there are plenty closeup photos out there, so lets enjoy something a little different.
