the micro nikkor 105 and 60mm af-d lenses, plus the non os sigma 150 with or without the sigma 1.4 tc are my weapons of choice on the d7000.

each serve me  well for different purposes. flowers/fungi; 60mm. bugs; 105mm. butterflys/dragonflys; 150mm, sometimes with the 1.4 tc.

if you want to get really close add the raynox dcr 150 or 250 but be prepared to focus stack as dof will be extra shallow.

another great set up for butterflys/dragonflys is the nikon 300 f4 af-s with the tc14 ii. not 1;1 but the whole creature can fill most of the frame from 5 feet away with excellent sharpness.
