Here is a list of macro lenses that will work with your D3100. The longer focal lengths allow more working distance between the lens and the subject which may be nice if you're dealing with small creatures that would be frightened or be aggressive by the proximity of the lens. All these lenses are capable of excellent results.

AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G
AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED
AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f/3.5G ED VR
AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED
Sigma 105mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM Macro
Sigma 150mm F2.8 EX DG OS HSM APO Macro
Tamron SP 60mm F/2 Macro
