Here are some shots of Phlox Blossoms and a Cattail made with the EOS 60D and the 60mm f/2.8 Macro lens. These were made along the old Champlain Canal North of Waterford, New York.
On this occasion, I carried my travel tripod, a Benro A150EXU, and used a remote release. I used live view mode to make composition easier.
I also used the eyepiece cover as the sun was directly from behind the camera. I usually just cover the eyepiece with my hand when shooting on a tripod to keep light from affecting the metering system.

Here are some shots of an underwater leaf and dried up moss from a walk on Peebles Island with the EOS 7D and the EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS II lens at 200mm. These are handheld, taking advantage of this lens's image stabilization feature.
