I really want to take closeup shots such as this one:

From what I have read, and please correct me if I'm wrong but I would need a macro lens(?) in order to get these types of shots.

I am still rather new to all this, and I'm not sure what I should be looking for. I can't afford a prime lens, but want something decent. Somewhere around $200 or so would be great.

I live right next to a lake and there are all sorts of creatures already out just waiting to be photographed!

Any advice?
