Another option is to use extension tubes with regular lenses. I've had good pics with tubes (stacked 13mm, 20mm and  36mm) with a 70-210 beercan. With this, you can shoot from a safe distance without bothering your subjects. I doubt its going to be as sharp as a dedicated macro lens ( I do have the Minolta 50 2.8 macro, but working distance is too short) but the tubes were cheap enough for me to try them.

Both were taken with 70-210 beercan, three tubes with AF.
