It's All in the Way You Look at Things

Here's a quick little demonstration showing the impact of changing your shooting angle:

Leaf Footed Bug, probably family Coreidae

...And here's the same bug on the same flower. 
Both pictures are interesting and each has its own particular merits. For example, if I wanted a reference photograph to identify what species I've encountered, photo #1 is obviously more suitable.
However, I find photo #2 to be more visually interesting because it showcases the bug from an angle that I am not used to seeing it. 

Which one do you like best?

Equipment info: Nikon D70 + Sigma 100mm macro
