Kit 14-42 lens will be sufficient for close-ups like flowers, but not enough for  smaller subjects like bees, flies, so on

For smaller creatures the cheapest way is a legacy prime macro lens like Vivitar 55/2.8 (I've bought mine for $40 that is cheap IMHO)

I’m surprised how much Wikipedia contributes to the forum.
