    Well I'm a big fan of the Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Macro

    It's a really good lens and you dont have to get TOO close to still fill the frame with it (kinda important when taking bees/wasps)

    A cheaper option is to get a set of extension rings which will enable you to focus closer than normal. I don't like them as much as a proper macro but they do work

    probably ;) but those extension tubes will work if you want a cheaper alternative
