Typically, I'm not a fan of bugs - close up or far away, but I like your macro. The background of the leaf is a little distracting for me, I wish it had been black too to make the green of the critter stand out even more.

colors are nice but I think there's a little too much blur.

The black area of the background lets it down slightly.
