I just got my new 100L. I'm having a good time trying to figure out this macro thing. I'm usually taking pictures of my kids. This lens allows me to find some slightly more cooperative subjects. :lol: Feel free to give c&c. Trying to figure out how you all get that amazing detail in the eyes.

Very nice first shots! Love the colors in #4
Would love to see pic #1 with more of a crop so that we can see it a bit closer/bigger though.

Thanks for feedback. I have enjoyed coming to this section of the forum. I'm happy to finally be able to contribute and look forward to improving my skills.
My boys are very into bugs so it gives us something fun to do together.

Really great start! Nice shots and focus. To get really close try getting some extension tubes.

WOW Helene..... :) Congrats on the new lens.. looks like you're gonna get along great! :)

Lovely images, focus looks amazing and some nice detail.. (I confess I'm a little jealous as I've been wanting a macro lens for quite a while now...). :)

Kinda fun to shoot macro for a change huh? Refreshing not to have to "coax" your subjects into cooperating. :) ENJOY!! :)

Thanks Kristi! Yes, it's nice to be able to shoot without bribes and begging for cooperation.
It's also something fun I can do with my oldest son who LOVES bugs. He will find a bug and yell for me to get my camera. He loves seeing the images afterwards. I'm loving the lens so far especially since I can easily take portraits with it if I see the opportunity while shooting macro. Best of both worlds.
