#2 is a Varied Carpet beetle. I cant read EXIF at work so can't comment on how to improve these shots.

F0, 0 focal length in the EXIF on one of the images. Looks like he's using tubes that don't retain full connection information. I'll offer my C&C:

#1 - good attempt, needs more light in the facial area, hard to make out the eyes. Looks good though.

#2 - again, looks good, a tad underexposed and a frontal shot would have been better imho. Nice looking beetle, well spotted.

#3 - OOF as you said, but the shadow is cool! Find it again, get a sharp shot of it and nail that shadow!

#4 - Looks like a Weevil of some sort at a quick glance, not a bad shot, lighting is good, but again I'd have wanted a frontal shot, or a 3/4 shot from the front. Slightly OOF, but pretty close, good stuff!

#5 - Same as #4, but you got the frontal 3/4 shot going! Good stuff! Exposure looks pretty right to me, but it's again OOF. These lil buggers move quite a fair bit, so they're hard to nail and keep sharp.

Keep at it, you're showing good potential. It does take a while from my own experience to start nailing sharp shots, so don't be put off, keep hard at it and over time it'll all fall together.
