Hello Jason,
This would be a super image if only it had a little more depth of field to it. I Love the overall composition, bright vivid colors and wonderful exposure, but the focus seems a little soft on the berries in the foreground as well as those in the BG. The two in the middle are in sharp focus and show very good detail.
The f/3.8 aperture setting doesn't seem to be enough to obtain the DOF that you need for overall sharpness in this particular shot.
I noticed in your gallery that the majority of your photos are taken with an aperture setting of f/2.7, but I also see that you used an aperture setting of f/5.3 on your toad shot and an f/5.8 in your jellyfish photo. In these particular photos you achieved excellent DOF and the sharpness and detail is very good throughout the entire image. I really don't want to sound too harsh, I wish only to be of some help in future shots.
