Lovely shots dpc.  Makes me want to try harder.  Too bad a little more depth of field wasn't attainable.

I did do some selective photo stacking using HeliconFocus with the daffodil pictures, but it was not my intention to produce an image with maximum depth of field. I often like to choose areas of sharpness and leave the rest unfocused to produce a more abstract effect. I'm not really happy with the orchid shot. The plant was located in a hotel lobby where the lighting wasn't the greatest and I didn't have a tripod (and I would have looked a bit odd if I had had one with me).
