A wee bit of a stretch ya think? Either way, nice image none the less. Good luck!

The front of the flower being blurry is very distracting, as is the back half of the praying mantus. The whole photo in focus would be a good idea.

Not bad, but extremely shallow DOF. It would be nice if a bit more of the bug were sharp.
