Better call the pest control man pronto. They look hungry (the pink one has his tongue hanging out) and if they are heading towards your house you are in serious trouble.

Eeeeewwww - Gil's got cooties! This shot would be even cooler (maybe?) if you had used a "deep?" DOF (what's the word for non-shallow?) to make one cootie look like he was suspended in mid-air above the other, making the rock look like a backdrop (am I explaining my idea coherently?). I don't have a preference here - I go back and forth between them. It's a sunny, happy picture, but I would prefer them both in focus.

Yes, Monkey is correct, I think, about this being a picture where you want a wide depth of field. Nevertheless, it's got good composition and good thinking behind it, evidenced by placing the plastic critters outside in a natural environment.

Of the two, I prefer the first, both for its composition and also because the focus is sharp on the pink guy. The second photo never quite achieved good focus. A little bit of camera shake, perhaps.

Gil: a beanbag or two might do the trick.
