LOL! Wonder what the ant is thinking in the last shot.
Reminds me of the ref at a wrestling match.

Its hard to get both eyeballs in focus at the same time.

For the last one it appears your focal length was 56mm @ 1/400 shutter @ f5.6. Probably could have increased your aperture to have a wider DOF to get both eyes in focus and since snails move relatively slow the slightly lower shutter shouldn't have hurt too much. Worst comes to worst I'm not sure how your camera handles ISO noise but upping it from 80 could have also worked if a smaller aperture would slow the shutter too much. Interesting shots though.

Thanks Gerafix.

Im a complete newbie, so Ive got lots to learn.
Yes, snails move slow, until you try to focus a macro lens on them, then its hard to keep up with them.
