Many Thanks All

Sorry for the late reply, I was waiting to get back to my computer rather than using my phone to reply, the new format doesn't really work that well on iOS.

I'll reply to the messages in one go.

The flash is my FL-50 with a diffuser attached. With the 12-60mm lens, the diffuser when adjusted down extends beyond the end of the lens by about 5cm, just enough to provide the diffuse light needed. Here is a picture with the 50-200mm attached but you get the idea.

The wasp was about 3-5cm away from the front lens element when the zoom is maxed at 60mm.

I didn't mean for the exif to be stripped, all the shots are f16, 1/125 sec at ISO 400, TTL flash.

Thank you everybody for your kind words, I too was pleasantly surprised by the quality achievable using this combo, it will certainly get more of a workout in the future.
