Well... the colors are so nice and i think your last photo is excellent.

Cropping is pretty much essential with living things in the frame. I'm no expert at it but sometimes it works to simplify.

This one was from the 18-70 kit lens that everyone says is horrible. I'm going to see what happens with butterfly closeups using a 500mm mirror lens thus year rather than the Tamron 90mm which still gets too close for them to be happy.
