Those are pretty spectacular, all of them have some detail in them that stands out.
My favourite is the second to last one, wonderful image.

Mike, you have some very outstanding macros here thanks for posting them. The DA 50-200 does really well with close up lenses, I use a Canon 250D with it.

Its good to see that others do similar stuff now i hope you don't mind but i'd like to point out the difference between the Raynox 250 and the Canon 250, since they have the same designation some may think that they are the same diopter which they aren't, the Canon 250D is a 4 diopter lens and the Raynox 250 is a 9 diopter lens

Heinrich I wrote that last bit for other that may be reading, i assume you already knew this thanks for you're comments

Mike,

Great images captured. Seems to be very sharp. I am about to pick up the same raynox for macro lens. Any sample images if mounted on 1:1 macro lens. Thanks.

I wrote a huge amount of information in this post

Re: Hoya Magnifier Close-up Set: Pentax SLR Talk Forum: Digital Photography Review

depending on the particular macro lens you may not get any added benefit and using a prime gives you very very little leeway in terms of magnification whereas the zoom gives you a lot more range, these macro adapters lock you focusing distance to a set value plus/minus very little
