hey, nice pictures! great start. I have also just recently started with macro, loving it just one comment, to help you off a bit.... getting as close as possible is not always the best shot. It's nice to be able to count the facet eyes of a fly (I did exactly the same thing to first 100 shots or so :)) but you'll soon find out that taking a bit more distance and getting more context in your shot gets you more appealing results. I started off using a flash, but I have dropped that idea at the moment (might pick it up later) and shoot natural light. However if you're really into 'getting as close as possible' a good flash + diffuser will definitely help you.

Keep it up!

Here's some yesterday pics. All handheld, no flash. Cam: Panasonic G1 Lens: Panasonic Leica Macro-Elmarit 45mm F2.8
