    I'm partial to the Nikon software as it really nails Nikon colors. I use a very dated copy of LR and PS in conjunction with it.

    DSLR lens compatibility

    You can adapt Minolta lenses with most mirrorless cameras. I use a 50mm celtic (minolta) macro with both a Sony A6000 and a Nikon Z50. They will not adapt to any dSLR that I know of.

    Macro beginner

    I would use a macro lens, focus stack the toys and then blur the background in post processing.

    Dragon Fly

    My favorite insect and I've had no luck photographing them. 99% of the shots I see in macro forums are close ups and not really macro so, no harm no foul.

    Nikon 105mm 2.5 or 135mm 2.8 as macro lenses

    Yes, either will give you a more comfortable working distance than the 55. I use a 105 f/2.8 micro nikkor with my Z50 (crop frame). It works well for what I use it for which is bug protography.

    Fly eating cake icing, 2 wasps fighting, and a dung beetle

    How in the world that thing ended up in my band room a few summers ago, I'll never know. It probably was some kids pet or something.
