Phil, really nice stuff. skip that diopter merry has, your depth of field and clarity without it are perfect. that simnia, the spanish shawl, and the steansi, just beautiful. If I can make a suggestion, on the shawl, crop it way the hell in. Get rid of all that black background and show as much of the texture in its head and face as you can. The color shift where the rhinophores go from purple to orange is insane, it almost looks digital and pixelated.

And that simnia, that's one of the best shots of one of those I've ever seen. I've actually never seen one yet. Try cropping it down so the diagonal of the branch occupies the full diagonal of the frame, and then that eye should be right on the lower right 1/3. That diagonal sweep makes my eye go around the image, but the detail and the texture in the in-focus face brings me back to the face. Great stuff.
