Nice macros - I like the last one the best.

Did you use flash? It looks like you did not.

Cheers Scott, no flash used, in fact the flash unit is still in the box. i may look to see if a third party ring flash unit is available.

I use flash (FL-600R) when shooting insect macros and the extra light helps a lot with stopping down for depth of field, but might try shooting without because the E-P3's lack of dynamic range tends to give me hotspots, like on this guy's eyes:

Got a lot to learn, but it's fun trying.
