Number 3 is really excellent. The focus is perfect, just draws your eye in perfectly. :)

What macro lens did you use?

Hi Roy,
i've got myself a reverse ring as well for my 18-55 but i'm struggling like hell to get any decent shot. maybe, if you have somes time son your hands, you could put a few words together as to how you make those shots, with info such as camera settings, distance from the subject, is it cropped or not... basically, some kind of walkthrough on how to make this magic happen :)

hello sir atkinson. what camera are you using. almost all of my photo in my flickr account last year with macro are non-crop. try shooting at 55mm first and practice with a non-moving subject. use a flash for better result and dont open up your aperture too much.
if your using canon, there is a DOF preview button that you can set your aperture before reversing your lens. try shooting at f/16 or smaller. this is where your flash comes in. shooting at small aperture gives you good DOF but less light.
and practice practice practice :)

I really love these macro shots of yours, keep it up! Where do you find all of these fun insects and arachnids to shoot?

TY andrew. and @atkinson, as my suggestion to all the asked me about reversed lens. try practicing with a stationary object(not an insect). try a soda can or anything on top of your dining table that is well lit. try practicing your focus at 55mm, 50mm, 45mm... and so on. you will see what your working distance will be. try and see what the result in your computer(PP) then try again and again till you are comfortable focusing. then go outside and try again with insects. you will see a big difference. but dont forget try using a flash(diffused) for best result. good luck and happy hunting.
@andrew. all of this came from my backyard. im in florida so got a head start when it comes to insects. i wish i can shoot more but have no time
