please let me know if i,m on the right track with my lighting here.basically using stofens,and puffers on the head,and a vellum sandwitch( 2 layers) on top of the MPE.
the biggest thrill for me yesterday was creeping to MPE min focus distance ( 4 in ),from not one,but 2 different dragons.

Great shots. The ladybug looks 3D on my screen! If anything, I'd Burn the plant stem from the ladybug's head to the corner of the frame. (Mainly the first shot) It's certainly not overexposed, but it's hot enough to distract me.

I might be wrong with this but I think the bright stems balance each other up. If you remove the upper one the lower one(s) might then draw the eyes downwards.

Alternatively, cut off enough of the left of the image to place the head and thorax at the one third intersection position. You may want to cut off the bottom, along the midline of the main stem but I'm not convinced.

#1 and the last one are lovely!
Agree that the stem on #1 needs some highlight correction
