Question about macro settings

I am completely new to photography. I have a 35mm SLR that I bought an an estate sale. It is a film camera, a Canon AE-1. It came with lenses also; a 28mm, a 135mm, and a 50mm.

I want to take color photos of close subjects like hummingbirds, butterflies, etc.

Could anyone tell me what lens to use, and what shutter speed to set the camera on?

I would really appreciate it.

I also have a Minolta SLR.

Digital photography may be taking over, but I still have film that I want to use. I eventually want to do b&w film photography also.
