Excellent shot on number two - but number one must have moved - I can't see it.

No, just standard macro mode. I'm about 12" away and zoomed in. Used flash to get the shine on his eyes. I had to brace the camera on the wall to point focus on his little face. It took about 40 tries before the sun finally came into the right angle and I got about 6 good shots.

It's back in the first post now. The server must have had the hiccups.

Both are great shots!

LOL - That must be why his pupils are so small.
