Not universally. A long working distance is good with skittish things, like butterflies, but spiders and beetles often don't care until you touch them. You can't do the "rest the lens on your palm and hold the stem/twig in your fingers" technique with a long working distance, like you can easily with 100mm on FF or 60mm on crop.
