I like this composition better. The colour is nice. Due to the crop there seems to be some detail loss. Get a macro lens soon and you can get amazing shots of these critters

This seems to be a better crop. It is not easy to get everything in focus from this side as the depth of field at close distances is much lower. You can use the depth of field preview button to see the area covered. Look forward to seeing these in better light as I like the colour.
