I like #1 & #3. The OOF background in #2 is too distracting for me with such a fine detail subject.  Maybe a less severely corrected lens ? Or maybe some applied blur to the background ?
My Zuiko 4/3 lenses  do the same when there is any flutter in background highlights.

Armand, bring #2 into Camera Raw and then slide the Blacks slider all the way to the left. This would be a fine shot if the wet weed stood out. Right now it's pretty much swallowed by the light background.

Thank you all!

Regarding the second shot, it was taken @ 70mm F4 (with a Nikon 70-200 F4). I kind of like it but I get it why you don't feel that it's working. I did try several frames but I couldn't really get the background less obvious.
I tried to subdue it a little more in LR:

Well, that's an improvement, but, yeah, there are times when there's nothing you can do about stuff like that.
