Here are two macro shots I took with my un-aided FZ28. I'm waiting for my Raynox 250 to aid these types of shots further.
They were both taken in aperture priority and manual focus.

Nice shots there. Was it hard to keep the eye still?
It was, although that's not my eye. I had someone pose for me and of course took a lot more shots than I kept.
