C Hutton is on the mark. His shots are fantastic. I am getting together an EX 550 with a bigish softbox to use with mey 100mm 2.8 macro. I have been using a borrowed ringflah and can't get a single in focus shot with it on the camera - don't know what I am doing wrong.

Have a look at some of these - not as good as C hutton's but I have only been doing macro for a few months.

I am not entirely sure that I like flash. i prefer to have natural light and always take shots how I find them - I also sometimes like to have a little bit of the natural habitat showing.
