These were shot in the high noon sun, wonder if I would have gotten better contrast setting up some sort of shade over the flowers

Great shots Jeff.

Yes you could try a diffuser, some high speed fill in flash might be more practical with this sort of subject, I start with the flash exposure about a stop below the ambient.

Very promising start at wildlife macro. Look forward to seeing future posts and in particular your experimentation with flash and diffusion.

I tried one shot with a flash but it wiped out the details. The only flashes I have are 420EX and they don't have the ability to change output unless they are withing the "wireless" zone in front of the camera, will need to experiment more.
