    Me and my fiance just recently got our old D3000 (needed new charger). I've been playing around with it, and it can take some great pictures still. But there are some things Im just not satisfied with. Mostly the things I've been taking pictures of are all "nature" related. I especially like taking pictures of bugs. But I only have the factory lens, and one other that is fairly good, but it can be difficult to capture bugs with it. Any suggestions on lens' that would be great for capturing the tiny world around us?

    An amazing cheap macro lens is Tamron 90mm f/2.8. I think mine was $250. Or you could use extension tubes so that the focus is closer to the object. Extension tubes are much cheaper.
