Bought this lens about a month ago but it wasn't until last Sunday I got a chance to really use it.  This was using the 5D MK III with the lens shade about 3-4 four inches away from the frog.

Yeah, this lens rocks. I've been using my 72mm HD2 CPL on it for most of the summer with a step-up ring in order to not need to purchase a 4rth CPL even with the pretty big drawback that hood doesn't fit one at the same time as the larger 72 filter  :-\ .  Still, CPL or not, the lens is super fun to use!

A dude who wrote an article on macro shooting suggested the best place to go for flower shot -- your local nursery. So obvious... and brilliant.

So a few weeks back my wife discovered that one of our plants on the terrace had a number of caterpillars. When I say "a number", I mean that the number was significantly larger than the sum total of the fingers, toes and thumbs that the both of us have.

Yes, the plant was being attacked. Leaves were being chewed up - etc.

Fast-forward to the end of the last week. I counted 9 caterpillars on the plant. Ok, to be technically correct, eight caterpillars and one pupa.

Well, I have been taking the tally each morning since, as soon as I wake up, and the count varies. May be I need more sleep. It went as low as five entities and currently I see 6 pupae and one thingie - kind of a dried up outer shell of a caterpillar. That one is anchored to a leaf - so does it count as a pupa? No idea - I am an Electrical Engineer who got into software because he could not become a doctor as these chaps (doctors)  needed to cut up frogs in the ninth grade. Well, that is probably too much information. However, here are the pictures...

I am using 5d iii with this lenses. I want to take more close pictures with this lense, but I don't know how to. too much close makes the picture blurry. check these photos, these are the closest I could take. If anybody could help me ....

First of all I do not think 1/30 sec is fast enough for a 100mm macro (more if you have stopped down) neither for handshake nor for subject movement.

Second how much far away were you from your subject. As far as I understand the MFD of this lens is around 30cm. Thus anything closer the subject will be unfocused.

For good and sharp macro you need the steadiest camera and a fast shutter speed with good light.

Check your settings. Working so closely with a low shutter speed isn't going to really get you greater results unless you're using a tripod.  The blur in the third photo looks like it's from motion blur.  You need a higher shutter speed and working with a 100mm f/2.8L that close, I'd say you need 1/100 or faster.
And the amount of noise in the photos! Surely there wasn't too much of a need to use such high ISOs? And being a 5D III you had to have been extremely high to achieve that much noise.
Also, don't forget the more that you increase the f stop number (aperture), the more you will get in focus.
Watch how close you are to the subject.  just because it's a macro lens doesn't mean it isn't limited.
Happy photographing :)

Here's one of mine taken a little more than a week ago. Not used the macro ability here, but took a close-up bird portrait with it.
