Hi all - have a Nikon D80 with a 105mm macro lens that I like to take photos of insects with. My problem is narrow depth of field means that I will for example have the insect's wing in focus and the eye out of focus.

I cannot figure out the best setting to maximize depth of field with the flash. There has to be some optimal combination of aperture, shutter speed, whatever, that increases my depth of field when using the flash. Or put another way, how can I use the built-in flash to maximize depth of field?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

- Thom
