Hi, I'm a beginner, so any critics/suggestions would be much appreciated.

Not bad.

The yellow in top right distracts from the red flower.

I would have cleaned up the black dots from the yellow flower. Cloning or "healing" in e.g Photoshop.

If you are go to frame more than one of the subject, an odd number generally works best.

Technically good but the twigs and buds distract from the fly. For the second image, I would crop off all but the side shoot on which the fly is standing. Less is more!

Im only here to see not only the wonderful pics but also to see the equipments used especially the macro lenses at play in order to capture those wonderful pics. I, myself, haven't tried it yet but I'm really curious about it.

A good option for you might be to just reverse your lens. There is a whole topic devoted to reversed 50mm lenses:

My first try with moving subjects and new lens - Tokina 100mm. Plus the wind was blowing.

Way more difficult than I thought it would be.

Nice results. In the first one, is there something going on (stuck together?) between the left antenna and leg? Quite a lot of noise in the background prevents it from looking really clean.

Although we can click on the images and reduce then to screen size, the huge size of the images makes it difficult to access the reply button. A good size for posting is 1024 pixels wide.

I don't think you should remain in this topic. Move on to posting your own.

Thank you Harold. The ladybug has a piece of the flower there I believe. And yes, I definitely need to decrease the size of the images. A couple other forums I'm on, the software automatically does it.
