I like them, I think you did very well with your new lens. I also feel that macro photography allows me to see things I never would have seen before. Nice work!

Thank you for the nice words, as for the macro mode - if you are really at 1:2 macro in MF mode it's hard to "focus with your feet" with that shallow DOF at 300mm.

I should really consider a tripod for such shots.
