Keep 'em coming!  I like the vari-zoom shot too.

I like the top photo and the one immediately below it the most.  The top one is my favorite because the BG is not distracting like it is on the 2nd one.  Good job!

I just wipe it gently with a microfiber cloth.

Awesome shot!  You really nailed the focus on the eyes.

I believe it's only available online.

I was expecting a candy bar. ;D  Anyway, I like the 1st shot a lot.

Maybe clean the camera's battery contacts?  Better yet, use this opportunity to rationalize an upgrade to a 5Dmk3! ;D

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.
