Unless you need the extra speed, your 18-55 kit lens should do just fine. It, too, focuses down to 6 inches. However, it is a zoom lens, so a prime might do better. On the second page of my flora and fauna galary there is a picture of a tan moth (or is it a butterfly) sucking on a pink flower (14211) that I shot with the 18-55. Keep in mind that the original size of this pic is the maximum size that a D5100 will shoot. When viewed full size, the individual lenses of the moth's eye become visible. (Well almost, but still, it's a very sharp pic from the 18-55 lens.)
