This is nicely composed and presented, and the square crop fits very well.

I would have rather preferred a third, out of focus daisy though, in order to avoid having a situation, as present, where you have two flowers competing for attention. With three, (or odd numbers), it's easier to focus on the middle subject, whilst with even numbers it's a bit harder to do so.

Having said that, your choice to use shallow depth of field and isolate the flower, plus the composition on the lower/left third intersection, help to minimise this issue.

Finally, the image has a certain softness to it that I like, conveys a sense of delicacy and freshness, I like that! Well done.

Colors and textures in and out of focus here are working well together--- Your choice to make the dominant daisy sharply in focus holds the image together-- all in all-- Superb!
