Thanks for looking and commenting Na2el and Dave :)
Na2eL - Taken with a 350D/Sigma 105/430Ex setup except the last shot taken with a 40D/MPE-65/430Ex setup

Dave- I've been using a 430Ex on my 40D/MPE-65 for quite a while but more recently swapped to one on my sigma 105/350D rig. Just is much nicer to use- faster recycling and much better use of batteries (more shots from a battery recharge primarily because the 430Ex seems to be able to function still when the voltage starts dropping).
RSIFTTMP= repetitive strain injury from taking too many photos

Ahh! Well, how many shots would you have now Brian, 40k plus?

The 430ex is a nice flash gun isn't it!

Nice set here. How do you manage to stay so still...? I've got the shakes...so, a tripod really helps me.

And all of them, except the last, were taken with a 105mm macro? Are they heavily cropped? Ah, but then again, they have the 105 x 1.6 factor...eh?

Nonetheless, always excellent, as usual.

Manish - none of the shots are cropped- I normally use 33mm of ext tubes with my 105 but had to take them off for this DF :) #5 was taken with my MPE-65 lens
