Great comp with the flowing curve, nice colors and light, and I always love the water droplets.  So different from your stacks - I’m not sure where the focus plane is, (I’m on the road and viewing on an iPad Mini, hardly great for close examination), so take this fwiw, but I feel he eyes aren’t grabbing mine like I’d expect.  Personal taste, viewing conditions, etc - my $.02
Good light,

Love the composition, background and the colors. dew drops add to the image. Agree with Craig on focus on eyes. But still artful.

The wild curve through the frame is very cool, and the selective focus emphasizes the drops, so you discover the leafhopper in them. I like that.

Love the abstract feel of this, beautifully composed with that sweeping curve. I see the eyes quite well, especially since they are a different color, and stand out. Wonderful work!
