Good start with the new lens- takes a lot of practice to get used to it.

good start but jumping spider shows why ring flash doesn't cut it with highly reflective subjects, the reflection is too distracting.

Great start - the MPE may have a bit of a learning curve, but it's also quite addictive!

You're doing well.
You gradually learn ways to help stabilise the lens handheld. I often use a pole which I grip in my left hand along with a bit of camera that works pretty well for lower mags. For higher mag shots I normally try to work out a way of resting the camera lens on something. This may be the same solid surface the subject is on or I grip a stem or leaf near the bug and then rest the camera on that hand. This mechanically links the camera and subject making it much easier to get good focus.
