Hello Nelson,
As Luciano already pointed out just the pistil is in focus. One thing I noticed right off the bat is that you only used an f6.7 aperture. This is not nearly enough to get the amount of DOF you need for this particular flower. If it was completely flat like a butterflies wings you could maybe obtain fair results.
I would try at least an f/22 with the camera on a tripod. For macros images I many times use manual mode in order to have more control of my flash intensity. With your Canon EOS 5D and lens you could go as high as 800 if you are worried about speed. When using a tripod you don't need a really fast shutter unless your subject is moving. Also try a shot with and one without flash and check the results. Sometimes the flash make a lot of difference in sharpness. I only know this because I have tried it on some of my own macros. Good luck!!
