The head is in focus, however the remainder is blurry.

Did you use a tripod?

Thanks for posting.

Depth of field at macro distances is very small - millimeters. That is the reason for the blur, not camera shake (as you imply with the tripod question).

Camera shake with large DOF would show sharp lines, not crisp in-focus areas and bokeh from blur.
