Flickr limits the number of groups to which a photo may be submitted. Pro members can submit a photo to up to 60 groups. Non-professional users can submit a photo to up to 30 groups. Would you like this group to opt out of the group photo upload limit?

No - this group will count toward the limit of the photo (60 for Pro members, 30 for free members)
Yes - this group does not care about the number of other groups in which a photo are.

Say yes!
And change your group settings.

Thank you !

That looks like the 60mm macro on the last photo, so he does have a m4/3 macro lens. I see he does have an OM adapter. If he likes manual focus lenses the 50mm macro that Al Mullen suggested is an awesome lens (I've used one for 30 years or so).
I don't see a flash in your photos, so if he doesn't have one that would be a possibility. A ring flash is sort of the standard default recommendation for macro work (personally I don't find the flat lighting they give too appealing, but that's just me). A good quality standard flash with a reflector card (Demb Flip-it) is my preference, but again that's just me.

Although I have to say that personally the only photography gift I really appreciate is a gift card, unless someone coordinates with me in advance so I get what I really want.

He doesn't have a macro lenses there from I can tell - a real nice wide one in the 7-14!
The 2 options I recommend would be to get a manual Olympus one - the old 50mm/3.5 macro:
one I took with it:
or maybe the digital 45/1.8
I have only used the 50mm/2.0 in 4/3 mount that is sort of simialr

My dad is awesome! In the last couple of years he's really got into Photography; especially Macro photography.

My mom and I want to get him a really great gift for Christmas to help support his hobby.

Can anyone give me some ideas of what he might appreciate? I asked my mom to take some photos of his camera and lenses. Here is the link to those photos:
Dad's Camera and Lenses

And here is a link to my dad's Flickr Profile if you want to see what kind of photos he takes:

I'm hoping you guys and gals can give me some ideas.

J’habite le sud-ouest de la France tout contre les Pyrénées mon terrain de jeux préféré, passionné de photo nature et surtout de macro, fleurs, papillons, libellules.
J’aime les rencontres sur le terrain , l’ échange et le partage.
A bientôt Serge

i use Venus Optics 'Laowa' 60mm f/2.8 2:1 Super Macro Manual Focus Lens with my Nikon d5300 and so far getting good results. 2.1 macro for £160 is not bad. but the fast and scared bugs, i will need a macro with more reach.
