I can't really say much that hasn't been said already but I will try :)

The red on the legs and antenna really help this little guy's beauty. I second the DOF comment, it is spot on. I also like that you seem to have captured him eating :) That makes this a very interesting photograph to look at :) Last thing: Is this a grasshopper or am I crazy?? He is a cutie :P

First off, it's one heckuva shot and one heckuva find! Great macro detail, lighting is spot on, colors are very good. I like the fact there's OOF in both the foreground and the background. He's pretty well camoflauged but the DOF used allows the viewer to "find" him. That's a pretty good use of "bokeh" to some extent, but a very sophisticated interpretation is required to see that. The single flower near his head which is also in sharp focus (obviously it had to be) may be what limited the ability of the use of bokeh and/or DOF to bring out the bug more.

There is some noise/grain in the background, but not enough to note. Any picture with a shallow DOF will have noise/grain, and to me it's normal. I certainly don't think it enough to seriously detract from your score but this is a very particular crowd!

Had I not been trying to comment on more of the images this challenge I may not have stuck around long enough to see the critter.Nice sharp focus ont he front. The bokeh in the back seems a bit grainy and doesnt seem to add a whole lot to the image but at he same time it doesnt really detract from it outside of the grain.

This looks a bit too set up.
