Hello, Edward,
Thanks for posting this nice series of reptile pictures. Excellent choice of lens for taking these pictures using 200mm. Is the an EF 70-200mm f/2,8 L? The lighting is excellent considering you are using AUTO mode ( I peeked into your picture data). A couple of the pictures look a lot soft though. Did you take these pictures in jpeg or RAW? If you are using jpeg, that may be the cause because the MKII tends to give a softer image when jpeg is used (at least on my MKII). I love the lizard with the orange head, everything is perfect on those 2 pictures.

Canon 5D MKII, EF 24-105mm f/4L, EF 50mm f/1.8, EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro, Tamron 70-300mm f/4.0-5.6 SP Di VC USD XLD, Sigma DG 150-500mm f/5.-6.3 APO HSM.
Canon EOS T3i, 7D and 70D EF 17-40mm f/4L, EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6, Sigma 18-250mm f/3.5-6.3 DC OS HSM, 430 EXII Flash.
Sony A200, SLT-A58 System with HVL-F42AM Flash.
Mirrorless APS-C camera: Samsung NX100, Canon EOS-M.
M4/3 systems: Olympus OM-D-E-M5 and Panasonic DMC-G3.

Hello Michael,

Thanks for the feedback. Regarding you comments:
-I was using both the EF 70-200mm f2.8 L IS Mk1 and the EF 100mm Macro.
-I almost always use aperture priority (Av), though i sometimes use shutter priority (Tv) if I intend to stop motion.
-I recently began shooting all of my images in RAW, which includes this set.
-I attribute the softness to inaccurate manual focussing by the photographer (me!)
