Nice and sharp on the baby, but I think the DOF is a little too shallow. Also, the light is a tad too harsh and the glare on the insect takes away from the "baby" a little.

Absolutely disgusting! But what a shot!
The colours are slightly faded but its an excellent close up.

The 'baby' is a bit blown out, good DOF though.
