i like the 'sorcerer's orb' very well. there is no ambiguity of the intent- one more of art than of literal representation. this is not as clear in the shot of Levantine Leopard. first impression of that was that the butterfly was likely the intended subject and the yellow blob to the right is competing for attention. but as an art piece, the abstract, soft edged yellow blob contrasted with the not only hard edged but dramatically angular butterfly holds together much better. but springtime? white and pink and sometimes yellow flowers and pale yellow-green foliage and soft light = spring. the blown dandelion blossom puts the lie to 'spring'.now, the shot with the fresh pink flower, pale yellow-green background, soft lighting and the three very imperial-looking insects just screams spring.
with small objects, light glare can be a significant issue. i suggest trying a polarizing filter. the loss of f stops is a pain but i think you'd like the increase in detail and color saturation.
