Awesome shots!  Good focus, I like the blue on the top fly but I prefer the bottom shot because more of the fly has the leaf as the BG, making it easier to focus on the subject.

I've had experience with the shorter flash cords which really dont allow much freedom other than macro applications and brackets... PC cords are a bit archaic and temperamental at times, but works if needed.  The longer 30 feet cords mentioned above sounds interesting but I wouldn't be thrilled having a long thick spiral cord attaching my camera to a flash 30 something feet away...  seems more like a liability than a help and would at that point almost prefer a second flash for a master/slave thing rather than going that route but that's just me.

The 30-ft. cords mentioned aren't coiled.

I was thinking the exact same thing!

I've got the 30 ft. OCF ETTL cord, it works great!

Chili dog is funny, too bad about the distracting background.

I find the "kneeling down" shot to be the most visually appealing.  The horns are interesting and I like how the animal is looking at the camera.  Good job!

If you use a tripod, some multi-exposure shots of lambs running/jumping might be interesting.

Here's some air show pix shot with 5Diii, 70-200 2.8L II, and Canon 2x teleconverter.  Not the best lighting conditions but I was pleased with the gear.

Awesome shots Neil!  I have some Guar Gum and a set of Kenko extension tubes being delivered tomorrow and these type of water shots are just what I want to attempt.

Has a bit of a Halloween feeling to it.

Great shots there HH!  If it were me, I would have cropped the distracting stem out of the bug pic.

Awesome!  Thanks for the tips about using Guar Gum and rinse aid, I'll have to try that out (if I can figure out where one can buy Guar Gum). :)

Stop it! ;D  These shots are so great, they make my shots look crappy!  Care to share some setup?  Is this water you are using?

Cool!  I was wondering how you synchronized the multiple glasses.  Thanks for posting the setup. :)

Menu->External Speedlite Control->Flash Function Settings->select the 3 triangles and press Set, then select the middle option.  User Manual pg. 194.
