The first one is great. Clean composition and clever use of lines. The second one has great detail, but you could probably use a lower ISO in the future for smoother looking images. Nice work for a start! ;)

Good composition and good focus. #1 will prefer a lower angle shot like #3.
#3, good to diffuse your flash. Good composition and pose.
#2: Nice lighting and good focus on the eyes. Pic abit noisy though.

I find the flash is rather strong and hash which cause the grass to be slightly over exposed. Try flash compensate -1/3 or more.

Manual mode, but forgot what's the FEC..
EF 60mm F/2.8 macro is the lens.

That pic of the fly with his laces undone is priceless! great work.
Thank you.
I think the laces are eyelashes, they were crossed at the time.
