I enjoy getting very close up pictures of mostly natural things for both abstract photos and for just nice close up photos of say a butterfly. However, it has been a while since I have had time for my photography hobby. I am now lost as to which lens would be best. I have a Nikon D70 body. I do not have a lot of money so can't go for the really high end but hope to put on my Christmas list. Thanks for any help you can give.

Butterfly you might want some distance like Tamron AF 90mm f/2.8 Di SP AF/MF 1:1 Macro Lens this does have a lens motor or Tokina AF 100mm f/2.8 AT-X M100 Pro D Macro Lens I think do but got to check. You can get macro tube or reverse ring, macro filter that are cheaper, but you got to google how that works as I haven't done it.

Reynox DCR-250 macro converter if you just want something to play with. It's 75 dollars and will produce stunning macro photos. It's a snap-on filter and will work universally on many cameras from DSLRs to point and shoot cameras.

I have a Tamaron AF 90MM f/2.8 macro lens I just love it .. it will take a real nice close up of bees and butterfly and especially flowers which is my favorite.. I personally love close up photography this lens also takes a very pleasing portrait photo at 90 mm with very nice bokeh
