Thanks for looking and commenting :)

Scott you may be right about #1 but suspect the rear back leg is down the side of the abdomen :)

What lens was used for these? Nice detail and DOF is good. Thanks.

Thanks for the comments Kurt and David :)

David- I used an MPE-65 lens but the DOF is misleading as I use focus stacking to increase it.
