I wonder if I should change my pop up flash, I have never ever got anything else to work sadly. I think I might try a pringles can diffuser

Good set of images.
Pringles can flash / diffusers work well.
Use a styrofoam plate at the end and cocer that with the diffusion material.
Provides a nice even illumunation.
In case your interested in the id of your images
1 American Hoverfly, Eupeodes americanus
2 Bagworm moth, Family Psychidae
3 Harvestmen, order Opiliones
4 Yellow-haired, Sunfly Myathropa florea
5 Grass Moth, Family Crambidae
6 Rusty Tussock Moth, Orgyia antiqua

How sure am I about #1, not at all now I find out your in the UK.
Most modern distribution info for it I can find is Canada South to California, Texas, Mexico, and Florida (Vockeroth 1992).
It's close but I think probably not correct Sad

Not sure why an external flash does not work on your camera, but I don't know your equipment.
