I've seen some brilliant macros by the photographer reversing the lens on the mount. Some of the best i've seen was with an old Pentax 28mm reversed. I wish i could find the guy again.

I've tried extension tubes, but the resulting lack of light can be a problem, as can screw on filters with them putting extra glass in the pathway.

I know prime macros are expensive, perhaps not so bad 2nd hand , but they really are the best. Shot this pic with a 60mm f2.8 Nikkor AF Micro

1 photo to show uncropped Mantis and and another cropped down to show Mantis close up
