Looks like you are having a lot of fun with your lens. Even though flies especially here in Australia are a pain they make wonderful subjects for macros. Well done.

Flies are a pain, if they don't fly away, they are moving around very quickly like a robot on fast forward! I am particularly proud of the blue bottle though i must say
and the hoverfly which was actually taken with my Oly bridge camera on its standard super macro mode, i love the macro on the old bridges.

Bees are hard though, they always have their head buried in a flower or moving from one to the next without stopping, i've yet to capture one.
