I recently got a macro lens and this was one of the first photos I took using it. I was on my way home and I saw a dandelion on the side of the road and I knew I had to take a closeup

I like the contrasting colours of blue and yellow. I would even increase the blue further to enhance the effect. I think your band of focus should have touched the centre star as you now have two focal points (the focus and the Hot-spot) and they pull your eye to the same area, but they are under inspection, not the same place. So your eye kind of goes where it should but under scrutiny there is nothing there.

Well done for recognizing the opportunity and getting out of your car to make the photo. I like how you've used the lens compression and the very shallow DoF. In editing, I will decrease the highlights with about 50% in order to decrease the brightness in the center slightly.
