Hard to jusdge detail if you upload such small crops. 1000x1000 is already very small but you didn't use them
the best detail is in no 2. There is oodles of detail in the bee and part of the flower is also sharp.
the DOF in no 1 is almost not here, I reckon the fur could be a tad sharper.
In no 3 it seems you focussed on the petal, not the ant. Well I would have gone for the ant.

I just saw that you used a 60mm. Now for insects that is very difficult to get so close without standing in your own way. To get a 1:1 you have to be at about 12 cm.. not ideal so you are facing a really difficult job.
Try perhaps a 90mm or 105 or even your tele with an extension. I can hear you say well you got all that I haven't. Since I miss my 180mm I had to come uo with all sorts of ideas how to get my insects any which way. So far the best workaround was the tle for butterflies and the 90 with extension for everything else.
thanks for crits and comment
