First shots with Nissin Flash

Okay, so I got some good advice here for starting out with the DI866 MkII. I finally got the flash and the Eneloop batteries/charger to go with it. I didn't have any human volunteers, so had to resort to pets and critters to test it. I've attached a few shots for C&C regarding the flash. All were shot outside, so no chance to bounce the flash. On the shots of the giant hornet (last photo), I thought I was getting some great stuff, but found many images had ghosting, as you would see with slow shutter speeds. I was in aperture mode at the time. Should I have shot in manual mode and set the shutter speed higher?
