I've been doing more shallow DOF shots over the last few months and really like the effect. This image was shot at f/6.3 handheld with some additional lighting from a LED panel. I think its an interesting effect with the colors. Shot with a Z6ii 105mm Z lens

I also like the shallow depth of field in some of my macro shots. But the composition and placement of foreground and background elements is challenging to get a pleasing shot like the one you are sharing here. That challenge is of course what makes it interesting.

I was trying different shots on bees and shared a few in an online Nikon photo group. people were saying you need to shoot f/16. I felt like it depends on the situation and mood.
This is a very nice imho

Yeah for years I’ve always shot in a manner to get every detail in focus. This is nice for a change and really has a pleasing appearance with flowers and such. I’d like to experiment on some insects at some point as well.
