Nice pictures Erik! ...

Are you using any extension tubes along with the 100mm? Which macros lens is this? Canon or some other?

Hi, and thank you for nice comment!

The lens I use is Canon 100mm f2.8 macro. (Non L version). This is almost identical in image quality to the L - version, but without weather sealing and without IS. And a lot cheaper!

I do have extension tubes (really really cheap ones!) but the DOF is so thin they are hard to shoot with, and with a small aperture for compensation, lighting is a problem. I probably should invest in a good ring flash or the mt-24ex macro flash, but then again it gets very very expensive. Now I use a 430EXII and a diffuser. I rarely use the tubes, and they are not used in any of my pictures in this thread.
