Youve taken some very nice macro shots recently Ian, and this is another good one.You seem to have the knack!

What you need to think about with macro is the aperture needs to be quite small, smaller than this at f/3.2. You've got good speed, which is good, but experiemnt with f/11 - f/22, and increase ISO to maintain at least 1/160 for this lens.


Quick mod loaded which is simple exposure and contrast, a little sharpening, and a crop.


Well done,



Regards


Willie

Willie makes some good points.
While shallow depth of field can work well, a little more is needed for insects, in general.

I do like it on the fly on the red flower in V2, however.
That's my favourite shot of this collection.

Back to the standard macro comments. Exposure vs depth of field. In every shot you need much more depth of field. Unless after effect due to wide aperture, when this close, you must be using f16 minimum. on a dedicated macro lens, designed to work well at tiny apertures, f22. This then causes all sorts of lighting problems.

In these images, they all suffer from distraction due to focus fall off. Unfortunately the only apparent real answer to this is a tripod and longer shutter speed to use small aperture and low iSO for quality. With moving subects, very difficult. That is why so many macro photographers use dedicated flash. Ring flash or similar.
