That's really nice composition. You have a very good eye for a photo. Mushroom could be a little sharper, perhaps.

It's quite a small file - is a it a crop from something larger? That might explain the slightly unfocused look to the mushroom. It's a bit grainy for ISO 200 when I enlarge it, too.

I'm assuming it's a tiny mushroom, if that's a daisy in the background. Might be worth trying with a smaller aperture - the background will still blur nicely, but you will get better DOF with the mushroom.

The EXIF for your file says ISO was 200. Possibly a little bit of camera shake? It's really hard focusing well on tiny objects and close to the ground.

Was it hand held? It might be worth resting it on something (I have a cheap bean bag for low down shots). Anything would do - some bunched up clothes for example. Just something to hold the camera still and use the timer once you have composed and focused it to avoid any camera shake.

Experiment with manual focusing as well. The camera can struggle to auto focus on something as small as this at 1:1 magnification.
