Can it be that you're using pdflatex instead of simple latex? If  
you're going to use this kind of diagrams more often, it would be  
useful to create a shell script, in TeXShop's slang a so-called engine:

	latex "$1"		# or pdflatex -output-format=dvi "$1"
	mpost simple5	# how is this MP file name created? Is it always the  
	latex "$1"
	<convert to pdf>

make it executable, and save it in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines as, for  
example, feynmp.engine. Then you can start all those Feynmann+MP TeX  
files with

	%%!TEX TS-program = feynmp

and TeXShop will automatically use this engine for typesetting.
