I took these the other day.
I used my cheapo eBay tripod (which was pretty useless since its not stable or heavy enough to cheap the camera perfectly still while focusing/adjusting settings)
I used extension tubes and a M 50mm 1.7

I probably took about 30 shots but had to bin most, well all but these infact.
A slight, slight breeze or even a drop falling off was enough to throw the whole scene out of focus and force me to start adjusting things again!

Thanks for looking.

I agree with Will, those are great and the third one is also my favorite. The inverted reflection in the droplet is too cool. Could you see that effect in the viewfinder or did you only discover it when you viewed the pic on the computer?

I really like the 3rd picture that you have there. I didn't know that the 50mm 1.7 could do that with a tube! I gotta do some research on the lense tube because so many people are able to get soo many great macro shots with it.

Third one is my favorite too. Very nice pictures, well worth the effort it takes to do macros with an extension tube (I had very poor luck, so chose a macro lens, rather than going this route).
