No I didn't think of rotating it - but that would work.
I liked this orientation...

Nice composition and selective focus on this lovely allium and visitor, Tom. Interesting suggestion from Matty but I like your choice of presentation.

Worth a click for best detail. Impressive clarity and lovely contrast between the beetle and the flower.
