Nice one Chris, what 'f stop' are you using?
I've been trying a new technique this year. My aim (in macro work) is always to get maximum subject focus and depth of field. I only ever do hand held photography as I cannot get on this tripods etc.
I have been using shutter priority and for hand held the minimum speed is about 1/250th but I prefer 1/320th, this then always gives you a high "f" number (usually between f10 and f20) and hence maximum DoF.
If it is windy I might go up to 1/500th but that still gives me f13 or thereabouts.
I hasten to add this suits me but might not suit everyone but the sun has to be out to achieve the DoF I'm after. I do not even get the camera out now if it's not sunny.

Thanks Chris, I have an old clunker of a macro (but I do like it) but don't always get the DoF right and am looking to change my techniques also. I sometimes carry a lightweight monopod with a detachable head, but also prefer hand held, as I usually end up tripping over the mono. In the chine there is not always a lot of direct light and I don't use a flash either; maybe I shall use more Tv also and although I use RAW, I don't like to fiddle with the pics. Cheers
