Don't you just love these things? Did you hand-hold this? If you had a tripod with you, it would have probably helped to increase the f-stop so as to get more of the subject in focus. Lots of times a shallow DOF can be good in macro, but I don't think it helps you here. If you know you are shooting for DPC and you don't have a tripod a trick is to pull back and then crop later. The further you pull back, the wider the DOF becomes while keeping the same shutter speed.

VWD and deserved of a ribbon Janine, pity. Nature shots are doing somewhat better the last few weeks. I'm glad! One of only 2 x 10's. Go Nikon D80!
