Hi Jai , very nice photo of the moth great detail and point of view.
for getting more focus on the length of the moth you can either stop down your aperture , or shoot from further back , both will increase your depth of field / effective focus area. judging by your exposure numbers this photo would have required a flash or more natural light to be able to stop down much.
as is the photo is just fine too focus is dead on the face, and has great detail.
First of all this is a great picture...I have the caterpillar of this on my 6th page as a point of interest.
As for getting the dof sharp through the subject I cant really advise you on a compact shooting mode...Its slr territory to be able to stop down to a high f number to keep the subject sharp right through..And then its not easy!!
That said the details here are superb and I am proper pleased to see the incarnation behind my slug I captured months ago!!
Al the best
Aha! the full front eh? I have heard of this angle but usually in cinema:-) Very nice and makes it look quite sleek...for a beast of a 'muth' as your famous French Inspector used to say...I am showing my age..it is from Pink Panther..

very original capture of Mothra!
The POV is excellent!
Superb composition too.
With the DOF issue all you can do is make the aperture as small as possible, something like f/8 I think is what most compact cameras go down to. The smaller the aperture the larger the DOF.

Really nice macro shot with great detail on the face. Regarding the depth of field, it's already been said. The smaller the aperture, the greater the depth of field, but the slower the shutter speed. But I wouldn't worry too much - as long as you have the eye in focus, which you do, then you have a good change of getting a good shot. You will find with macro photography, you never have much of a depth of field.
