Thank you, I certainly wouldn't say perfect but I am really pleased with it. You have, however, asked what I think is the most important question though; I spent months trying to justify buying this macro lens and then someone told me about how it can be used as a normal prime lens as well. That was what gave me the final push towards buying it and I am certainly happy that I did. It is the Canon EF 100mm Macro F2.8 lens.

This shot [link] of the same sort of butterfly was taken on my first day out to test it. It was taken at F/2.8, so I think that I was very lucky to get so much of it in focus but it remains one of my favourite shots.

You can see with this shot I have used the flash to achieve a better F stop setting (F/8.0) and therefore a greater depth of field and detail. However, I feel that while it has much greater detail, it is also very harsh and brash compared to the 'Butterfly 01' shot. So the next step for me is to try and achieve some better lighting :)

Yea the f/8 has a nicer depth of field. I assume you use a ring flash?
Nice! i have heard good things about the canon 100mm, lucky you. Although im quite happy with my Tamron.

No it's the standard flash on the camera, I really hate using flash in photo's because it is so harsh but if I want to get better macro shots I guess I'm going to have to learn how to control it better :)

Woh nice work using the inbuilt! Mine, like you suggest, is always to harsh for macro. Ring flash is suppose to be balanced and shadowless, so yea might get you better control.

I've seen a lot of home made diffusers being used (card, tracing paper and lot of masking tape) and the results do seem to be a big improvement. I think that I might give it a try :)

When I find an image that I would like to support, I nearly always find that you have been there first and have already made a positive response. You epitomise what this site is all about and why it is so important to young artist in particular.
