No. 2 if you are going to use these but I too would suggest a more mid range distance as the DOF is so shallow on closeups.

The first set is a better illustration for background I think

I'd say #1, as it demonstrates why to use a smaller aperture (subject) and why to use a larger aperture (background). #2 doesn't deal with background as obviously for the novice, and as I understand it they are the target group.

Thanks to all for some very fine advice! I really appreciate your taking time to review and suggest.
Yes, this will be for a very amateur group - mostly nature educators who are looking for new tools to get young people excited about the outdoors. The main thrust of the talk is how to use photography as an outdoor education tool, but I wanted to include some talk on better nature photography - both the technical and the artistic side.
Thanks again!!
