Your subjects are adorable yet I find he DOF is a bit much shallow (it works well in some cases though).I cannot access the exif, but I'd suggest using a narrower aperture;f/8 or even a bitbigger in numberto cover more of the flower in focus while preserving a nice bokeh from that distance. I'd use the single focus point and focus on the the part of the flowerwhere I find interesting and recompose. In the second picture I find the blade of grass somewhat distracting, again,from the beautiful subject : ) Actually I'm not much into macro photography, so I wouldn't say more.

Flowers are harder to get right than most people realize. I agree with bahadir that the first one (especially) would be better with a bigger depth of field (smaller aperture). The second one would be really nice if it weren't the out of focus blade of grass in front of it. I find that very distracting (and can't tell you how many times I've done the same thing, concentrating so hard on the flower and focusing that I won't notice that pesky piece of grass. You've done quite well with the pink - most cameras have a tough time with reds, tending to oversaturate/overexpose it. These came out very well.
