or the camera lens is too close to the flower causing the "macro" feature to focus on the background and not the flower .make sure your zoomed all the way out, put on macro and try to ge as close to the flower as you can while keeping it in focus. dont worry about the background or anything else that you dont wanty to get in focuz in the picture.
