The depth of field on the 1st is either too narrow or the angle you shot at did not optimise the DoF you had. The second shot is much better in this regard. The lighting looks good.

when you use extension tubes to get in close i really can't control the angle much with bugs, it isn't like shooting flowers where you can take time to maximize the angles.

the bugs have to be caught at whatever the shot is most of the time ,especially if they fly.

thanks for the comments....

Look at my gallery and you might understand what I'm getting at. I shoot pretty well exclusively with tubes and handheld and I know it can be tough but you need to be able to get in the right position to maximise your limited DoF otherwise you are wasting your time.

Tripods and shooting flowers is for girls
