I would really recommend getting a flash for your camera when doing macro photography.  I just got back into doing macro work and recently bought a new flash, my old one broke.  The difference is crazy.  Here are some of the shots I've gotten with my 5D MKII, Sigma 105mm EX DG Macro and Yongnuo YN-560 II







Canon 5D MKII, Canon 17-40mm F/4L, Canon 50mm 1.8 II, Helios 44M-4 58mm F/2, Sigma 105mm EX DG Macro F/2.8, Tamron SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD, Canon 200mm F/2.8L, Yongnuo YN-560 II, S100 with underwater housing

Good job OP!  :)  Don't worry about cropping.  It's part of photography.  Nobody's perfect.  :)  Also sometimes, during processing, you'll suddenly realize there's a better framing you can use than the one you used when you've taken your photo. E.g., for those moving insects, sometimes, you don't have any time to re-position yourself or your camera so my technique is just to frame it as close to what I envision it to be and crop it later.
