Images of close-up & macro subjects

Thanks fellas. I understand the shallow DOF issues and accept that. I appreciate the "artsy" aspect because I like to make the picture a whole scene. Just part of a bug does nothing for me, and I spend time thinking of the angle of the shot, the background, the colors and how everything blends together. I also move the camera towards and away from the subject to get different focal planes. I may try stacking in the outdoors, but wind plays hell on the subject and plant being still. For whatever reason, I just like taking pictures of bugs. They're not meant to be a scientific representation of the bug but more of an attempt to capture what the eye rarely sees. Thanks!
