Testing close-up settings

Okay, I have been green with envy over all the folks playing with their Macro lenses. But I decided to do a test of the close-up settings on both my cameras, and I think I need to go read my owner's manuals to see what I can do that I haven't found by playing with them.
No bees around this evening to check for pollen grains--I doubt I could have captured them anyway. Just how close do you have to be to get those insect pictures? With these I had the advantage of the subjects not leaving the premises mid-snap. The detail of the hair caught on the pincushion is pretty close and sharp.

Now where did I last see that book?
