First time with Extension tubes

So I just picked up a set of Pentax extension tubes from Goodwill this weekend and didn't realize how much fun these little buggers are. The two images are shot with the #2 tube and a Sears Auto 28mm F/2.8 M42 that I also found at goodwill for $4.99. Any comments or useful tricks with extension tubes would be greatly appreciated. These shots where handheld and there was a little bit of wind and whisky making it really hard to stand still.

$5.00??? Yeah I got some comments... You $uck.

Seriously that's great and I love hearing a story like that. The cheaper the better. Nice shots. Advice, Macro rails and a tripod. Reflectors and a flash. There goes the savings

that's pretty neat... I ordered some cheap extension tubes and a reverse lens adapter on ebay last week and am looking forward to shooting some more macros.
