Consider the following image:

Snap, Crackle, Pop?

There should be no question this has all the "clues" you could ask for. Shallow DoF; the color of the eyes is a contrast to the background; the pattern of the eyes creates an impression of a sphere; the black ring around the eyes adds to the contrast; vignetting; you name it. There is no question that this image creates an illusion of depth. But because you know it's macro, it can't have 3d pop? Ludicrous.

This picture doesn't have 3D pop to my eyes. I think you would need the legs and more of the leaf in focus.
