In a photo like this with your main subject so small it is best to try to zoom further in and use spot focus. If you are using one of the other focus options then your camera will have a hard time focusing on such a tiny subject. Mind you if you are using a consumer camera then this is a rather moot point.
In the future try to keep your shutter button pressed half way down to lock your focus on one part of the frame while recomposing your shot. Even better would be a special macro lens for whatever camera you own, not only will you have a better chance of focusing but this will enable you to fill the frame more with your subject and achieve better composition.
