Crocus

From my garden, handheld shot taken with ring flash and 100mm macro lens at f/16.

 

This is one of my favorite techniques for getting reasonable depth-of-field while also controlling the background. The use of flash allows you to "knock out" the background due to the inverse square fall off of the flash illumination.
