Nice work Ant. Macro stuff is rough as I just started today and have a boat ton to learn let me tell you.Thanks Scott,
I need to get a flash as well it seems. Shooting at fstop needed on my 7D isnt cutting it noise wise haha.
Macro does take a loooot of patience but once you start getting results in you will find out it's one of the greatest rewarding feelings you will ever get! Or at least thats how i felt once i say the eyes of those little monsters Keep it up and i am looking forward to seeing something from you as well. just so you know i also just started macro
As for a flash gun, check out ebay. Got my EX580 M2 at £200. There's times you can really get a bargain there. And with a flash your 7D will be great for this due to your crop factor ! Hope it all comes along for you mate.
