Very nice, I really like the second one. How do you manage to get them to hold still enough to take a picture? I can't manage to get that close to the ones I've tried to photograph.

I am really impressed.I wouldn't have thought these were possible with that lens. That is some nice work with a manual focus lens.

Those are really cool shots! The clarity is like what you see in National Geographic work. Those certainly brightened up my day!

Thank you, thank you, thank you everybody! your making me blush.
I guess I'm being too hard on myself, I thought they were OK for the first time using this setup but I was hoping for a little more detail. I had to use some noise reduction and that took away some detail.
again, thanks for all the encouragement!
