Default Macro 1:2

This is my first time trying out macro photography outside using the nikon sb-910 flash. It was hard to get most shots because it was so windy that day. I'm starting to get the hang of manual focusing with such a heavy lens. The lens I used was the Vivitar 70-210mm 3.5 lens. I don't have a tripod yet so all are hand held. No Post processing was done besides cropping and white balance because I wanted to show what this lens can offer. The contrast and color was one of the reasons I purchased this lens.







Please let me how I can improve with these pictures. I know this lens isn't a true macro lens but I will make it work.
