Some old, some new...  The best pics I like the most among my macros...  It's simply the best lens and most loved lens that I have.
AWESOME

Thanks!!!  One question though, will it be as good or better with FF?
I doubt anyone will see a difference in a image posted on the web ... but if you are printing then the difference in quality will be easily noticable.

Thanks man.  Actually I've got the answers now on my own since acquiring the 6D.  Yes, it's a noticeable difference once you print large.

I took these shots today with my 5D Mark III.  With the cold weather coming on, these guys are very lethargic and let me work out the exact distance to get the best shot.  I've seen people get amazing close ups of insects where you can see the details in their compound eyes.  I never imagined I'd have one of my own that was this good.

Nicely done!  The flower served also as a nice background.  I don't know what aperture you used but a smaller aperture would make the eyes more defined if you want.  Just remember to bring a tripod or a small reflector/flash.  It will be easier to nail down the shot that you want.

Thanks for the tips.  I used f/2.8.  If you click on the image it will take you to my flickr account and you can see a larger version.  There you can see the full details on the eyes.  But if the bees are still around today I'll try something around 5.6 and see what improvements that can bring.

Ok, I went back this morning and the little guy was still there.  I tried a few other aperture settings.  This one was my favorite, at f/9.  As an added bonus, there were dew drops on his eyes.  You can also see his entire face now.  My daughter said, "Look, he's happy!"

I walk the dog, see a flower next to the path, take my camera with the mounted 100L into my hands and I'm sinking  into another world of fantastic colours and forms. I like this lens.
Nice pic, perhaps you could post it in the appropriate gallery, this is not for the 100L !
