This is fine situation, but I would have preferred a smaller aperture.

Lighting is great and well done on getting the models to pose so well; they do look apprehensive!
being constructive, the leaf edge and foremost snail eye are sharp but I think the rest of the first snail's head could have done with being in focus to give the image more impact. Did you taken any others with a smaller aperture (i.e. larger f/ number) that you could upload as a version to this one? If not then always useful to remember to take lots of shots when you have a great set up like this using different apertures and shutter speeds to give you maximum choice after. Also check sharpness/depth of field using the screen and zooming into the image.
I really like this image!
