These are just a few samples from some shots taken in the garden this afternoon. All were taken with the vivitar 105mm at f.19 with the on board flash. Processing was done with Adobe Lightroom, which I am starting to get used to and which is remarkably good. The fact that these pictures could undoubtedly be better is more down to faults with the photographer.

4 Not sure what this one is, I'm assuming it's a moth but I really don't know. It's about 15mm from wing tip to wing tip.

5 And finally a ladybird enjoying a light snack. I'm sure that this would have been infinitely better if taken with an external flash.

dom,
these are great. you will be amazed when you get the flash off camera. you'll get nicer shadow detail and be able to shoot at 1:1. i haven't tried a flash reflector with the onboard flash. i know you can make them out of paper and milkjugs. try googling it. it's a shame the 105 is too long for the onboard at 1:1..

Dom, nice stuff - looks like the bugs are cooperating on both sides of the Atlantic.

Roy, I was using flash and no flash today and I think I like the no flash better. At some point I lost track.

jc,
i've taken many a macro with out flash and i agree with you. i really like the natural look, but, there are just very few instances where there is enough light to shoot at the apertures required for DOF. with macros i always have flash available whether the onboard or off camera. it's just i like the off camera better..
