My goodness, I'd be pleased as punch with any of these shots. That 2nd one is amazing. Great shots

I like the big eye's on the second last one. I think the last one would have been nicer if the DOF was just a little larger, so the wasp was also sharp, but that may have been unavoidable.

Damn Brit

Good work, I like the second and second to last.
Colours good on all of them, focussing, well that's Macro for you. If you're using autofocus, try switching to manual, a lot of people find it easier.

Excellent work. Nicely done. I would work a little on extending depth of field just a little and I think you would have top class shots (not to put these shots down)
