That is a cool pic with nice complementary colors. Just remember that it is tough to resolve much clear detail with macro lenses so close especially at f 5.6. Getting on a tripod and using live view to focus with the magnifier helps a lot. Here, I might have focused on the nearer yellow anther. I think closeup blur can work well as long as it leads the eye into the scene and/or frames the subject. There is nothing wrong with stopping down even more than you would in normal pics. I will often take that shallow depth of field pic and then take a few more with smaller apertures and examine later. I believe shooting with small apertures is something you might be able to get away with more on your D700 in terms of diffraction. Not sure. Keep shooting, experimenting, and sharing!

Thanks for sharing your experience.
