Thanks for the name, I think it's going on my wishlist!

A last photo tip - unless you are using fully manual modes, the camera will probably want to raise the ISO when you stop down, in order to compensate for the decreased amount of light getting to the sensor. Don't let it do that, if it goes too high you'll get noise ISO noise. For perfect photos (noise wise) I set it at ISO 100 or 200, and usually never above 400 for macros. If I had a full frame camera I could go higher without issues.

The equipment is necessary, but the photographer's eye is critical to get the wonderful result. One could say that the equipment is "necessary but not sufficient" to get those shots.

This picture was taken with f=8.0

I was trying to capture the sparkle in the flower of my Dendrobium, if you look at the full sized picture I think you can see the sparkle.

The throat has darkened up a bit too so is a great macro candidate I think

you have to zoom in on the full sized picture to appreciate it fully

You captured the sparkle/glitter (aka crystalline flash look) really well. Very nice shot.
