ok i just could not get focused in on this little guy. As soon as i thought it was focused he would move. Looks like i was really zoomed in so i lost all the detail and crispness?? what kind of settings do i need? I think i had it set on macro. idk i am still new at this.

In the first, your shutter speed was too slow. Really not much to do about that except use flash under those conditions. The second is just out of focus. Your autofocus locked on the flower in the foreground instead of the insect. If you can't manually focus, try using center point (or spot ) focus. And be patient.
