    Eitehr you got your DOF wrong or its due to camera shake. The fly seems a little blurry and the lighitng is highlighting an empty space.

    Yes, I thought so too. Normally what would be the DOF for this? I seem to find myself trying very hard to focus and the clarity point is very small - worse still because of slight movements, it keeps changing. Will a monopod correct this situation? Thanks.

    Firstly, your subjects in this case shouldn't be in the shadow.

    If the photo isn't cropped, I'm guessing that you've used all you AF points for this shot.

    use a smaller apperture (bigger f/ number). yes, a monopod or tripod (don't extend or spread the legs fully lah) would definitely help.

    Agree with Trigger on smaller aperture, but using monopod/tripod for insects macro would be troublesome. Better save your money for the longer focal length Macro Lens (Sigma 150 f2.8 is a good choice) and you could take your snipe without disturbing the insects.

    If you just start with macro photography, better use the MF in combination with footsteps since the AF is a bit tricky.

    Anyway, tele lens with extension tube (Kenko is the best buy) is a good start for Macro Photography.
