Love the colours..
There a lot of light in image may be you could have gone to a higher F Stop.
That way you get more of the bug sharp and a bigger focal area at a shorter shorter shutter speed.
F stops at macro level have a very short focal length.
F16 would be only 1 cm more if you were lucky.
F8 is less than half that...
It looks like you have centre point on focus that why the boby very sharp and losing a little on head and legs...
Do not get me wrong..
It a great image...
It been taken very well...
More info I hope will help you improve on your work...
Well done...
